Kyrgyzstan hosts CSTO joint military exercise

PanARMENIAN.Net - Troops from five member-states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) have arrived in Kyrgyzstan to take part in joint military exercise.

Units from the CSTO's six member-states -- Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and Tajikistan -- will take part in the "Enduring Brotherhood - 2014" maneuvers that are scheduled to start on July 29 in Ala-Too mountains, near Bishkek, reported the RFE/RL's Kyrgyz Service.

The drills will kick off 11 days after the CSTO's Collective Rapid Deployment Force, including Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Russian, and Tajik troops, conducted a four-day drill in Russia’s Chelyabinsk region.
