The Threat Of NATO Expansion

CSTO concerned about threats of NATO expansion

-Western countries and international organizations combined their efforts to seek “global and regional political, military and ideological superiority. “

The growth of NATO’s military infrastructure and its information campaign are the main concerns for the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), said the bloc’s Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha on Tuesday.

“On the Western European direction, against the existing power balance, NATO’s military structures keep approaching the CSTO’s zone of responsibility. This disrupts the current balance of forces and cannot help but concern us,” Interfax news agency quoted Bordyuzha as saying.

“The real threat of an arms race has existed as well as a rising level of tension and distrust,” Bordyuzha said during the eighth CSTO Information Conference here on Tuesday.

Bordyuzha added that the CSTO needs a joint tool to counter the “joint information superiority” of the Western countries. He said Western countries and international organizations combined their efforts to seek “global and regional political, military and ideological superiority. “

Bordyuzha said that to alleviate tension and to provide predictability and stability in the Euro-Atlantic region, “real establishment and sustaining of interactions between Russia and NATO are needed.”

Russia and NATO must jointly react on common threats, he added.

Such threats are terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, drug trafficking, natural and human-caused disasters, the CSTO chief elaborated.
