YEREVAN, JANUARY 13. ARMINFO. In case if Azerbaijan attacks Armenia, Collective Security Treaty Organization will support Yerevan, says CSTO Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha in an interview to Nezavisimaya Gazeta. He mentioned the 4th article of the Collective Security Treaty which says that aggression against CSTO member-states or on CST signatory by other participants of CSTO is considered as aggression against all the members.
At the same time, N. Bordyuzha said the major task of the organization is to create a system which would prevent application of armed forces despite the existing military potential.
In response to the question about a possible use of CSTO potential in settlement of internal conflicts in the member-states, he said that CSTO will not interfere into internal affairs of any country, including CSTO member-states. CSTO is created not to allow bloodshed and forceful settlement of conflicts between countries. N. Bordyuzha says color revolutions are an internal affair of any country if there is no direct infringement on the sovereignty of a country. CSTO potential may be used to hold confronting parties from armed conflicts, bloodshed and mass disorders. It is, first of all, the political potential of the presidents of CSTO member-states, CSTO Secretary General says.
