The Belarusian foreign minister said Thursday Minsk is going to focus on resolution of longstanding regional conflicts during the country's presidency in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).

MINSK (Sputnik) — Belarusian authorities are planning to pay more attention to the regional conflicts and their settlements during the country's presidency in the CSTO, Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said Thursday.

It is very important, because there are several conflicts we have get used to and we can not come closer to the solution of these conflicts," Makei said in an interview with the MIR TV broadcaster.
