DUSHANBE, 17 September (BelTA) – The Shanghai Cooperation Organization has all the resources not to play by the rules of external forces, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he took part in the Heads of State Council of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization on 17 September, BelTA has learned.
“The SCO is one of the world's largest regional organizations. This status gives resources and opportunities not to play by the rules dictated by external forces. After all, the disastrous consequences of imposing such rules are now obvious to everyone,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The president went on saying that the member states of the organization are now facing tremendous external pressure, but they are capable of maintaining peace at home and defending a multi-polar and fair world order for the future of humanity where everyone's interests will be taken into account.
“To achieve these goals, it is necessary to accelerate the integration of global development strategies, to expand cooperation in the field of security, to step up joint efforts in the field of infrastructure, industrial parks and high technologies,” the head of state emphasized.
