The Collective Security Treaty Organization is an intergovernmental military alliance of Post-soviet countries. It was created in 1992. The CSTO charter reaffirmed the desire of all participant countries to abstain from using threat of force. Signatories would not be able to join other military alliances or other groups of states, while aggression against one signatory would be considered as an aggression against all. CSTO members are Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.
