SCO not evolves into military, political bloc


08:58, June 07, 2012

China has denied the possibility that the Shanghai Cooperation Organization would evolve into a military and political bloc. Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin made the remarks at a daily press conference in response to media reports likening the SCO to an eastern NATO.

Liu says, "The charter of the SCO determines its nature of non-alliance, non-confrontation, not targeting any third country or organization and its openness to outside parties. The robust development of the SCO lies in its quest for a new model of partnership for regional organization, which conforms to the SCO member states' common desire for peace, development and cooperation. Adhering to the ideal of pursuing peace, promoting development and resolving disputes through cooperation, the SCO has upheld the principle of a non-aligned national relationship"
