Security agencies of Belarus, Armenia to enhance collaboration

National security agencies of Belarus and Armenia will enhance comprehensive cooperation, said State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Yuri Zhadobin during negotiations with Secretary of the National Security Council of Armenia Artur Bagdasaryan on March 17. The negotiations were held face to face and were followed by extended talks, BelTA has learnt.

"Belarus is one of the consistent adherents of the development of partnering relations with the CIS states, primarily with CSTO members. We approve of and support any steps aimed at building up the cooperation between all state institutions. Today's meeting is an example of further enhancement of the comprehensive cooperation between national security bodies of Belarus and Armenia," said Yuri Zhadobin.

Artur Bagdasaryan leads the delegation of the Office of the National Security Council of Armenia. The delegation is expected to stay in Belarus from March 16 to 18. Negotiations between the delegations of the two countries touched upon matters regarding cooperation between power-wielding and law enforcement agencies in the fight against modern threats and security challenges, international terrorism, organised transboundary crime, drugs trafficking, illegal migration and human trafficking.

As Armenia now presides over the Collective Security Treaty Organisation, avenues of the development of integration processes within the Organisation were discussed as well as the enhancement of the military and political cooperation, reinforcement of the potential for counteraction of modern challenges and threats, the military cooperation and the military and technical cooperation within the CSTO framework.

While in Minsk the Armenian delegation is expected to visit the Military Academy and a military unit of the internal troops of the Belarusian Interior Ministry.
