ArmInfo. Armenian Foreign  Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan on September 27 in New York took part in  the traditional working meeting of the heads of the foreign affairs  agencies of the CSTO member states.

During the meeting, coordination of approaches on key issues of the  UN agenda was discussed, including during the 74th session of the  General Assembly, as well as ways to strengthen cooperation between  the CSTO and the UN. During the meeting, an interesting conversation  was continued on the basis of the central event of the Russian  presidency of the UN Security Council on the theme of UN cooperation  with regional and subregional organizations in the field of  international peace and security, the contribution of the CSTO, CIS  and SCO to the fight against terrorist threats.

The parties exchanged views on pressing issues of global and regional  security. The need for further consolidation of efforts to ensure  stability in Central Asia, taking into account the situation in  Afghanistan, was emphasized. Interest was expressed in deepening ties  with other regional associations, primarily with the SCO, in  countering transnational threats.

In this regard, the Armenian Foreign Minister drew the attention of  the CSTO colleagues to the current situation in the peace process to  resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and the meeting with the  Azerbaijani counterpart held on September 23 with the mediation of  the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs. The Armenian Foreign Minister  emphasized the importance of a unified approach of the CSTO member  countries in ensuring and strengthening regional peace and stability,  including through non-violation of the military balance.

It was agreed to continue joint efforts regarding the inadmissibility  of distorting history and revising the results of World War II. A  joint statement was adopted in connection with the 80th anniversary  of the outbreak of World War II.

The course of preparations for the next session of the Collective  Security Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organization,  which is scheduled for November 28 this year in Bishkek, was  discussed..
