Russian President Vladimir Putin in leaving for Shanghai Wednesday to attend the 5th summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) uniting Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. “The summit will pay special attention to the situation in Central Asia in the aspect of further consolidation of the organization,” presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko said. “The SCO is capable of solving independently problems occurring in the zone of its responsibility but is equally ready to cooperate with everybody outside the region basing on the principle of equality,” he said. Prikhodko said that the summit is designed “to asses the results of the five years of SCO activities, view the implementation of decisions of the previous summit in Astana in 2005, highlight the important problems facing the organization and determine clear guidelines for its future activities.” The Shanghai summit will be crowned by new agreements on broadening the potential of the organization and counteracting threats and challenges of the 21st century including the creation of a system of measures of mutual response to situations threatening peace, stability and security in the region, Prikhodko said. The aide said the summit also plans to discuss issues of economic cooperation of SCO member countries. Countries with the status of SCO observers – India, Iran, Mongolia and Pakistan – have been invited to the summit as well as the Afghanistan leader who is to attend the meeting in the capacity of chairman’s guest. “The Shanghai summit will confirm the policy towards the development of practical cooperation with observer nations and express readiness for closer cooperation with them in such issues as fighting terrorism, … and drug trafficking, as well as for the development of economic and humanitarian cooperation.” In his Chinese visit Putin will be accompanied by Security Council Secretary Igor Ivanov, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko, Culture Minister Alexander Sokolov, Education Minister Andrei Fursenko, President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Businessmen Alexander Shokhin and a group of prominent Russian businessmen.
