Chinese FM Calls for Building Closer SCO Community with Shared Future

BEIJING – Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, on Tuesday sent a video message to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Day reception on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the organization’s foundation, calling for joint efforts to accelerate the building of a community with a shared future.
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has mapped out a path of cooperation and development that suits regional conditions and meets the needs of all parties, Wang said.
He made a four-pronged proposal on the future development of the SCO, including defining a new paradigm of a community with a common future, releasing new growth engines for win-win cooperation, promoting mutual learning between civilizations and the promotion of new responsibilities of global governance.
“We must inherit and transmit the spirit of Shanghai, and strengthen the exchange of experiences in state governance,” he said.
Wang called for staying united in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and for a concerted effort to suppress the “three forces of evil” of terrorism, extremism and separatism.
“We should speed up the alignment of the Belt and Road Initiative with the development strategies of the SCO countries and regional cooperation initiatives, and carry out more cooperation in high-tech fields such as the digital economy and artificial intelligence,” he said.
Regarding cultural exchanges, Wang said he hoped that more exchanges and cooperation could be carried out in sectors such as youth, women, think tanks and the media, with friendly non-governmental institutions playing a greater role.
He also called on the SCO to uphold the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter and promote true multilateralism.
