Now in Moscow a meeting of the governing body of the Organization of the Collective Security contract with the role of the presidents of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Expected decisions regarding support for the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia at the summit was not endorsed.
Subject of armed conflict in the Caucasus open a discussion minions of the CSTO. They approved a special resolution, in which they expressed "concern Georgian attempt a military solution to the conflict in South Ossetia, which has led to countless victims in the midst of civilians and peacekeepers."
The Heads of State organization practically repeated yesterday’s statement by the foreign affairs ministers of their own and called on countries "carefully and impartially, without double standards approach to the evaluation of the situation and decide actions that could provoke her impending aggravation." They welcomed the principles of settlement of the situation in the Caucasus, developed by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and called "for peace and security, the rule of international law."
Issue of recognizing the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in the statement has not been announced. Following the summit, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has supported the intention of the Organization of the Collective Security contract without the help of others to determine in this matter, in accordance with its national interests.
Dmitry Medvedev said that it complies with the general principles and norms of international law. With all this, he said that the organization will be the guarantor of the territorial integrity of member countries and non-interference in their affairs.
This decision of the CSTO expected, the analyst believes Minsk Lord Alexei. In his view, the country-members of the organization have identified the correct caution:
"CSTO is quite flabby structure not previously differed concerted action, and the decision of the Russian Federation on the military operation in Georgia was taken without consultation. A in-2, the military operation itself and the initiative of the release of South Ossetia and Abkhazia from Georgia alarmed all former CIS countries, showed eagerness to return Russian hegemony in the post-Soviet space. Virtually every country has its CSTO prepyadstviya separatist manifestations. "
By Alexei views King Russian pressure on Belarus to force to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia will last, and the official Minsk will continue to engage in political bargaining in this matter.
The true remedy for the Belarusian administration, which now would be willing to use and the ability to improve relations with the West — to return to the constitutional principle of neutrality of Belarus, Alex convinced Lord.
Meanwhile State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov said that the issue of recognition of Minsk independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia will open a discussion in the framework of the Parliamentary Assembly of the so-called Union of Belarus and Russia.
