BEIJING, July 20. /TASS/. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) assigns priority importance to cooperation with UN, SCO Secretary General Rashid Alimov said on Wednesday.
"We support further strengthening UN’s central coordinating role in international relations. Cooperation between SCO and UN represents a wonderful example of cooperation between regional and universal organizations," Alimov said at the meeting with UN secretary general candidate Vesna Pusic.
