An emergency meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organization to discuss the recent escalation along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border has been postponed indefinitely, CSTO spokesman Vladimir Zainetdinov said on Monday, July 13.

The meeting was initiated by CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas and has now been postponed due to consultations between parties, as the format of discussions has yet to be clarified.
