MINSK (AP) — Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko accused
other former Soviet republics on Friday of violating the spirit of a
post-Soviet security agreement by conducting individual negotiations
“If these individual negotiations are going on, what kind of treaty is
this?” Lukashenko said, referring to the Collective Security Treaty
Organization, which comprises Belarus, Russia, Armenia, Kazakhstan,
Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
“Russia is moving toward cooperation with NATO, and this we learned
about through the media,” he said.
