Iran will be the next permanent member of SCO


15 August 2021 (TDI):  The secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran stated recently “Fortunately, the political obstacles to Iran’s membership in the Shanghai agreement have been removed and Iran’s membership will be finalized through technical formalities.”. Iran has remained an observer member in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. There has been no official confirmation yet. However, there is a hint that the announcement might be made in the upcoming SCO Summit to be held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.

(SCO) is an intergovernmental organization founded in Shanghai on 15 June 2001.  The SCO currently comprises eight Member States (China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan), four Observer States interested in acceding to full membership (Afghanistan, Belarus, Iran, and Mongolia), and six “Dialogue Partners” (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Turkey).
