ArmInfo. The International public center of information support for
the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) held a conference
entitled "Regional conflicts in the South Caucasus and strategic
partnership within the CSTO frames" at the conference hall of the
Union of Armenians of Russia (UAR) on August 27.

As the information center of the Russia-based "Yerkramas" newspaper
reports, the conference covered such issues as the external factor
and domestic political situation in the South Caucasus region, the
problems of South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh, the regional
conflicts in the South Caucasus, recognition of independence of
South Ossetia and Abkhazia, joint exercises of the CSTO member states
"Border-2008". Representatives of such public organizations and state
structures as the UAR, State Duma of Russia, Permanent Representative
Office of the NKR in Moscow, Russian Association for Friendship
and Cooperation with Armenia, Center for International Cooperation,
etc. participated in the conference.

The participants adopted a resolution which welcomes the Russian
Federation's decision to recognize the independence of the Republic
of Abkhazia and the Republic of South Ossetia. The participants in
the conference stress that the recognition of independence of South
Ossetia and Abkhazia by Russia marked the beginning of stabilization
of the situation in the South Caucasus, but the firm stability in
the region is possible only after the soonest final recognition of
independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. This would prevent
the attempts of Baku's authorities to commit a genocide against
Nagorno-Karabakh people, their statement says.
