Shanghai Cooperation Organisation - SCO - on idän suurvaltojen uudehko yhteistyöelin johon moni pienempikin valtio haluaa liittyä näistä mainittakoon Iran ja Pakistan. Onko tästä SCO:stä ehkä USA:n ja Naton hillitsijäksi ? Ainakin SCO antoi varovaisen tukensa Venäjän toimille Kaukasuksella. Kukaa muu ei ole uskaltanut.
Press-tv uutisoi näin:
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has supported Russia's peacekeeping mission in Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia.
The organization's member states however reiterated that any solution to the dispute over the region should be based on the principle of territorial integrity, the Russia Today reported.
"Unfortunately, we have to state that attempts are being made to secure certain interests using force, not the principles of strict observance of international law and denial of confrontational bloc thinking," Medvedev told the SCO summit in the Tajik capital of Dushanbe.
"A fine example of such irresponsible criminal actions is Georgia's aggression against South Ossetia. It is well-known who connived with the Georgian authorities and even incited them, pursuing their own profit. Such behavior is unacceptable and should be stopped. In such an extreme situation, we remained reserved and continued our responsible and predictable policy," he added.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev expressed hope on Thursday that the united position of the organization would send a signal to" those who try to turn black into white.
