Editor's Note: The 19th meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) will be held in the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek, from June 13 to 14.

The SCO is a permanent intergovernmental international organization, the creation of which was announced in 2001 in Shanghai by Kazakhstan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The organization has expanded its membership to eight countries with India and Pakistan joining as full members in 2017 at a summit in Kazakhstan.

The SCO's main goals are: promoting their effective cooperation in politics, trade, the economy, technology and culture; making joint efforts to maintain and ensure peace, security and stability in the region; and moving towards the establishment of a democratic, fair and rational new international political and economic order.

Let's review what has been achieved since last year's SCO Qingdao Summit.
