Turkey’s president has stated that Ankara wants to formally join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is something Turkey wants to join, according to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday. The comment was made following the conclusion of the group conference in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. Erdogan participated in the celebration this year as a special guest.
Erdogan told reporters on his plane, “With this step, our relations with these nations will be pushed to a significantly different posture.” The president acknowledged that Turkey is looking to formally join the alliance when asked. Of sure, that is the objective, he replied.
The SCO, the largest regional bloc in the world, was established in 2001 as an alliance for economic integration and trust-building. China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India, and Pakistan are all members of the SCO at the moment.
In addition, four observer countries—Afghanistan, Mongolia, Belarus, and Iran—aim to join the bloc as full members; the two last countries have already started the admission procedure.
Currently, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Nepal, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Turkey are all recognized as special “conversation partners” of the organization. In September 2021, the SCO also began the procedure to confer similar status to Egypt, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
