On August 30, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution without a vote on developing cooperation with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), co-sponsored by members of the SCO (Russia, India, Kazakhstan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan).

The document reflects the "constructive role of the SCO in ensuring peace and sustainable development, promoting regional cooperation and strengthening good neighborly relations."

Specialized agencies, organizations, programs and funds of the UN system are invited to cooperate with the SCO in the interests of joint implementation of programs aimed at achieving their goals.

According to the adviser to the Russian Permanent Mission, Alexander Popov, who submitted a draft resolution to the General Assembly, strengthening cooperation with the UN is an important vector for the work of the SCO.

In 2019-2010, the Russian Federation, as the chairman of the SCO, intends to seek its further consolidation, strengthening interaction in the fields of politics, security, the economy and humanitarian cooperation.
