Talk:Collective Security Treaty Organization

Does any information exist about the creation of the CSTO symbol? It looks familiar to NATO's (Image:Flag of NATO.svg): four arrows each pointed to one of the four directions, in a circle. Was this intended or coincidal? Sijo Ripa 13:19, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
- I may be digging here, but I would assume the four sides represent north south east west and their resolve to aid everyone everywhere.
The spelling has been rectified because the Organisation is in Eurasia and ought to be called after the only official form of English in Eurasia - the British English. This page should serve only as redirecting. Bogorm (talk) 12:06, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
legend of map
The legend of map categorizes Azerbaijan and Georgia as "observers". Is this correct? The article itself limits their status to "former members", therefore I doubt them to enjoy the official status of "observers" at present. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:02, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Currently maps in this article and elsewhere show Taiwan as part of the CSTO. Chinese claims notwithstanding, is this accurate? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:12, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Title is mispelled
"The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO; Russian: Организация Договора о Коллективной Безопасности) is an intergovernmental military alliance which was signed on 15 May 1992. On 7 October 2002, the Presidents of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan signed a charter in Tashkent founding the CSTO."
Regarding the above comment, the treaty was signed in 1992, the Organization was created by UN Charter in 2002. (http://www.odkb.gov.ru/start/index_aengl.htm)
Further, the text of the United Nations Charter states that the Charter was "Done at Chisinau on 7 October 2002." Chisinau is in Moldova. The opening statement of this article, as we can see, states that the Charter was signing in Tashkent.
