CSTO RRF may be formed in June 2009

PanARMENIAN.Net - CSTO rapid reaction force will consist of two components, CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha said.

"The army component will be responsible for resolution of armed and border conflicts. The second component - special purpose troops - will be used to combat terrorism and drug traffic," he told journalists in Yerevan.

"Presently, legal aspects are being developed. Then we will proceed to the coordination process. The RRF will be formed in June 2009," he said.

"The CSTO doesn't form the RRF as a counterbalance to NATO forces," he added.

Asked whether the RRF may be used for resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, Bordyuzha said that the force will not be operated for settlement of internal conflicts.
