Mr. Hans-Putin announced that the member states will affirm in their final declaration their “commitment to the formation of a just, multipolar world order, based on the central role of the United Nations, international law and the aspirations of sovereign states to a mutually supportive partnership.” Putin at the opening of the plenary session in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.

For the Russian president and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, also present at the summit, this “multipolar” world is meant to be an alternative to American dominance of global affairs, which they condemn.

Putin, especially since his invasion of Ukraine, has intensified his efforts to unite countries in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America around this idea.

The SCO was founded in 2001 but has grown in recent years, now comprising nine member states (China, India, Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Tajikistan). On Thursday, Belarus, a key Russian ally, became the 10th.

For his part, the Belarusian President stressed: “We can destroy the walls of the unipolar world, feed people, and put an end to many contradictions and conflicts caused by social inequality, shortages of food products and resources.” Alexander Lukashenko.
