The member-states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) intend to work out uniform approaches to using national armed forces, Russian army chief of staff Nikolai Makarov told a news conference on Monday.

Answering an Itar-Tass question about the on-going drill in the Eastern Military District the General said "a schedule drill involving a formation of nuclear-powered submarines is underway near Kamchatka." He declined to elaborate on the objective of the exercise.

"We'll continue patrol flights of long-range aviation planes," he added.
