CSTO Troops Gather In Kyrgyzstan For Exercises

By RFE/RL's Kyrgyz Service

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

Kyrgyz military officials told RFE/RL's Kyrgyz Service on July 28 that 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.

The military exercises 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.
