Konstantin Zatulin declined to comment on issues related to the  candidacy of CSTO Secretary General in order to avoid further  insinuations

ArmInfo. First Deputy  Chairman of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs and Relations  with Compatriots Konstantin Zatulin refused to comment on issues  related to the candidature of the CSTO Secretary General in order to  avoid further insinuations.

So, on November 30 in Yerevan on the margins of the first plenary  session of the ''Lazarev Club'' When asked to comment on the  situation around the CSTO Secretary General post, he said in  particular: "I repeat once again, I understand why the question of  the candidature of the CSTO Secretary General has acquired such  epochal significance, although Many people still have not been  particularly interested in the activities of the General Secretariat.  Even more, it so alarmed some of our participants that even the  former CSTO Secretary General (Nikolai Bordyuzha  - Ed.) refused to  go so that he would not be asked questions, ", said the Russian  parliamentarian, while adding that he also does not want to answer  this question, since the decision was not made and it will be  discussed on December 6 in St. Petersburg. 

Zatulin urged to understand him correctly, recalling that he does not  represent this structure and is not familiar with the situation  inside it. According to him, he can share his assumptions, but they  can then be interpreted in different ways. "If I make assumptions  now, then someone will definitely be unhappy. I do not want to  aggravate the problem, and I would like to remind you that the  emergency situation in the CSTO is caused by the resignation of the  representative of Armenia - Secretary General Yuri Khachaturov. 

This case is not described in the CSTO charter and the leaders of the  Organization will have to solve this incident for the first time in a  similar way. You know about the positions taken by different parties,  and I will not comment on them so that there will be no further  insinuations, "Zatulin said.
