MOSCOW, January 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization does not intend to substitute NATO in Afghanistan after withdrawal of the international coalition troops from that country, special presidential representative for SCO affairs Kirill Barsky told a news conference on Wednesday.
"The SCO has made it clear that it is not ready to assume the duties to ensure security in Afghanistan," Barsky said. "We have no plans to substitute the international presence in Afghanistan and NATO countries."
The SCO's main objective is to "effectively implement cooperation between the SCO member-states and the observer countries in counteracting terrorism and drug trafficking," he said.
