ArmInfo. Desire of South Ossetia and Abkhazia to join Collective
Security Treaty Organization is their natural and sovereign right, CSTO
Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha said at today's press-conference
in Yerevan.

He also added that it has become clear to everybody after the
events in South Ossetia that only collective actions will make it
possible to protect one's sovereignty and security. "Everything
taking place after the conflict including from the side of Georgia,
is unequivocally pushing South Ossetia and Abkhazia to join collective
security system. I think that without collective security system and
without the support of other states South Ossetia and Abkhazia will
not be able to develop stably and successfully", - he said.
