UFA, July 10. /TASS/. The leaders of all member-countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) have confirmed that they will attend the commemorative events in Beijing to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and China’s war with the Japanese invaders, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping said on Friday.
"During the summit, the leaders of all SCO member-countries confirmed that they would attend the commemorative events in Beijing on September 3," he said.
Cheng Guoping noted that Chinese President Xi Jinping had also sent an invitation to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is the regional international association comprising Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. India and Pakistan applied to become full SCO members last September. Iran also seeks full SCO membership.
