YEREVAN, September 2. /ARKA/. The NATO can take advantage of the
current situation to speed up the process of Ukraine's accession
to the Alliance, said General Secretary of the Collective Security
Treaty Organization (CSTO) Nikolay Bordiuja.

According to him, the situation is clear now, and masks are thrown off.

"Now we see who is who and I understand now why the NATO does not want
to cooperate with the CSTO in organizational format in particular,"
Bordiuja said adding that before false explanations were being given
for this.

"Now everybody understands why our initiatives were being blocked,
including those on problems of joint measures against drug trafficking
from Afghanistan," he said adding that the reasons came up only
now.
