UFA, July 10. /TASS/. The process of the establishment of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is completed, its active development is in store, SCO Secretary-General Dmitry Mezentsev has said.
"The finalization of the draft SCO Development Strategy until 2025 confirms that the process of the organization’s establishment is largely completed. The endorsement of this document will be an instruction of the heads of state to seek a new level of interaction between the parties, especially in view of the prospects of the organization’s expansion," Mezentsev told the expanded session of the SCO summit.
According to Mezentsev, "the strategy notes that the global challenges and threats are gaining momentum in the world, while the factors of uncertainty and unpredictability remain unresolved and new regional and local conflicts emerge." "The unresolved settlement process in Afghanistan, the rapid intensification of activities of Islamic State and other similar groups oblige the SCO to ensure a larger scale of cooperation in the field of security," Mezentsev said.
