Uzbekistan is not considering reintegration into the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the Uzbek Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov said during a direct line on July 5.

"Neither there are plans to discuss or review this issue in the long term," Kamilov added. Uzbekistan will remain committed to its concept (non-alignment with any military-political blocs - Ed.), he emphasized.

Abdulaziz Kamilov added that this issue was not discussed during the state visit of the President of Uzbekistan to Russia.

Uzbekistan decided to suspend participation in the CSTO in June 2012.

The CSTO was established on the basis of the Collective Security Treaty, signed on May 15, 1992 by the CIS member states. Its participants are Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.
