"Russia, like other Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states, favors strengthening a multi-polar international order based on equal security and development potential for all countries.

Any attempt to solve global and regional problems unilaterally doesn't have a future.

It is essential to continue forming anti-drug security belts around Afghanistan, which could be complemented with financial security belts supervised by SCO financial monitors. This will improve the effectiveness of the measures to counter drug trafficking and money laundering."

Russian President Vladimir Putin

"Kazakhstan offers to create an energy agency under the SCO. Meetings of energy ministers of SCO member states and observer countries on mechanisms should focus on the concept of a single energy club that can become a key element of the Asian energy strategy."

Kazakhstan President

Nursultan Nazarbayev

"In future, it is extremely important that the documents adopted in the past six years by the SCO be executed."

Uzbek President Islam Karimov

"Heads of state have a mutual understanding that economic cooperation within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization will be expanded in areas such as energy, transportation and telecom."

Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev

"Tajikistan is willing to reinforce cooperation with China and other SCO member states to help prevent the security situation in the region from deteriorating and safeguard the security interests of all SCO members."

Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon
