The resignation of Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev will not affect the implementation of the agreements reached in the CSTO earlier, Acting Secretary General of CSTO Valery Semerikov noted, RIA Novosti  reported.

According to him, the resignation of Nazarbayev does not mean that the decisions that he has signed will be illegitimate.

Earlier it was reported that President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev announced his resignation on Tuesday. His remarks came during the live broadcast on Tuesday in a special address to the nation. His duties will be performed by Senate Speaker Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, until a new president is elected.
