ASTANA, June 8. /TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has offered Kazakh colleagues and other partners in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) to develop additional measures on the fight against international terrorism.
"We need here to discuss everything what is happening in the world, to look at and draw up additional joint measures on the fight against terrorism. I hope today we will have such an opportunity," Shoigu told his Kazakh counterpart Imangali Tasmagambetov on Wednesday.
The Russian defense minister has arrived in Kazakhstan to take part in the meeting of counterparts from the SCO member-states. "I would like to note that in this uneasy time when we face constant challenges and see rather big and serious threats in Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Syria and Afghanistan there is a need for common understanding and consolidated steps in the fight against international terrorism," he said.
Shoigu said Russia’s cooperation with Kazakhstan is of "strategic and good neighborly character." "As usual, we are heading towards solving issues before us rather confidently," he told his Kazakh counterpart.
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization is a permanent regional international association founded in 2001 in Shanghai. The organization brings together Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
