The SCO demonstrates a powerful driving force. The Chairman of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping stated the day before at a meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
According to him, it was symbolic that the meeting took place in the homeland of Confucius. «Confucius said: «Is not it wonderful when friends come to us from afar?» It is impossible to achieve success without your support and cooperation. The summit will succeed through our joint efforts,» Xi Jinping said.
He added that SCO went through a hard path and achieved colossal success. «We are forming a constructive partnership without an orientation towards the third countries. The SCO, with its growing authority, demonstrates a powerful driving force. However, traditional and non-traditional dangers are constantly emerging. We need to develop the Shanghai spirit to overcome them. The Shanghai spirit is our common heritage. The SCO is our family. We will build the common destiny of the organization and promote peace and security. We need to multiply cohesion and mutual trust,» Xi Jinping said.
