The head of the Eurasian military-political bloc CSTO says that the US military strike on Iran would cause a deep crisis in the surrounding region and far beyond.

The Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Nikolay Bordyuzha said that the organization was strongly opposing the military strike on Iran and at the same time prepares to possible negative consequences.

“The position of the CSTO member countries concerning the possible attack of the USA on Iran is united and consists of the idea that no strikes should be made. If this happens, this will shake many and from all points of view,” Bordyuzha said.

The official added that the organization was making steps regarding the possible flow of refugees from the region, but so far these steps are not very active as CSTO leaders still hope that there will be no attack.

CSTO unites seven former Soviet republics, including Central Asian countries that border Iran. Bordyuzha has previously suggested that Iran could also join the bloc, but no steps have been made in this direction so far.
