Unrestrained increasing missile defense harms int'l security: SCO heads of state


17:02, June 07, 2012

BEIJING, June 7 (Xinhua) -- The heads of state of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) uphold that the strengthening of missile defense by a country or group of countries in a unilateral and unrestrained manner in disregard of the legitimate interests of other countries will cause harm to international security and global strategic stability.

The leaders expressed the agreement in a press communique released here Thursday after the SCO summit in Beijing.

The communique said the relevant issue "must be addressed by all countries concerned through political and diplomatic efforts."

The two-day summit groups Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev, Chinese President Hu Jintao, Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Tajikistan's President Emomalii Rahmon and Uzbekistan's President Islam Karimov.
