Shanghai Commonwealth Organization

For more than twenty years, the success of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has been based on the factor of constructive dialogue and the ability to bring polar interests to a common denominator. The organization has always been positioned as a symbol of effective regional dialogue. Structural shifts within and around the SCO are radically changing the Organization's prospects for the next decade, shifting the emphasis to the search for a new mission and algorithm for the work of the expanded Shanghai Group. The new composition of the SCO opens up qualitatively new horizons for international positioning and cooperation.
