MOSCOW, Nov 23. The presidents of CIS member states will hold an informal summit in Moscow on December 20 to sum up the interim results of CIS executive bodies' work, Commonwealth Executive Committee Chairman and Executive Secretary Sergei Lebedev said.
"Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has invited his counterparts to an informal summit to look back at what has been done by the executive structures of the Commonwealth in the past 20 years, as well as to outline prospects for the future," Lebedev said at a meeting of the highest-ranking officials of the CIS, the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) on Tuesday.
"The general vector of integration development within the CSTO format has been positive in 2011," including in the energy sector, transport and communication, he said.
"The main task of our meeting today is to improve the quality of work of our organizations' executive structures," Lebedev said.
