The Iranian president warned of threats posed by economic, political and legal unilateralism to regional convergence.
The SCO was formed in 2001 in Shanghai by the leaders of Kazakhstan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan to curb extremism in the region and enhance border security.
The intergovernmental organization seeks to strengthen mutual trust and good neighborly ties between the member countries, contribute to regional stability and facilitate cooperation in different sectors, including political, trade, economic and energy issues.
Esmaeili added that the Iranian president is to depart for Dushanbe to participate in the Fifth Summit of Heads of State of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA).
According to Kyrgyzstan's presidential office, presidents of Afghanistan, Belarus, Iran, and Mongolia will be observers of the summit.
CICA is a multinational forum for enhancing cooperation towards promoting peace, security and stability in Asia. It is a forum based on the recognition that there is a close link between peace, security and stability in Asia and in the rest of the world.
