BISHKEK, September 13 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has asked partners in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) to consider joint celebrations marking the 70th anniversary of victory in World War Two on May 9, 2015.
“Russia plans sweeping celebrations of this remarkable event with foreign delegations invited to attend,” Putin told the organisation's Council of Heads of State on Friday. He proposed that member states should consider holding anniversary events within the structure of the SCO. Celebration plans could be approved at the group's 2014 summit, Putin added.
Earlier it was reported that SCO leaders at their summit have adopted the Bishkek Declaration.
This document reflects the main approaches to the further development of practical cooperation between the SCO member states, as well as fixes the common desire to expand and deepen cooperation.
In addition to the Declaration, the leaders have also approved the Action Plan for 2013-2017 on the implementation of the Treaty of Good-Neighbourliness, Friendship and Cooperation between the SCO member states, as well as reports of the organization’s secretary general on last year’s activities and the Council of the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure on 2012 activities.
At the meeting the SCO leaders have also approved an agreement on scientific and technical cooperation between the governments of the SCO member countries.
