Zhang Ming, secretary-general of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) expressed his hopes that Cambodia will become an SCO observer. Cambodia has been a dialogue partner of the organisation for seven years.

Prime Minister Hun Sen met with Zhang on November 12, on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summits in Phnom Penh.

Hun Sen thanked Zhang for his support for of Cambodia’s bid to gain SCO observer status. He underlined the Kingdom’s readiness to comply with the organisation’s recommendations as it endeavoured to reach this goal.

In a press release, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said that both sides had discussed Cambodia’s application for SCO Observer status at length.

Hun Sen said that since becoming an SCO dialogue partner in 2015, Cambodia has contributed to promoting cooperation between ASEAN-SCO. He underlined that Cambodia’s active engagement in different regional and international organisations has the aim of strengthening friendships and maintaining peace, stability and security.

“The secretary-general praised Cambodia for its active engagement in promoting ASEAN-SCO relations. He highlighted the SCO’s internal process for a country to be elevated from dialogue partner status to observer and expressed his hope that Cambodia will become an SCO Observer,” the press release read.

It said that the two sides had also shared their commitment to further strengthening cooperation between ASEAN and SCO.

Killexams : SCO looking for public input for justice reform

Article content

First Nations leaders in southern Manitoba are looking for public feedback as they continue to seek reforms, while Indigenous people continue to over-represent those involved in the criminal justice system and those who are behind bars in this province.

Article content

In January 2021, the federal government was mandated with developing an Indigenous Justice Strategy to address “systemic discrimination” in the criminal justice system and the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in the justice system.

Article content

The feds were also mandated to develop that strategy “in consultation and cooperation with Indigenous partners, provinces, and territories.”

The Southern Chiefs’ Organization (SCO) said that with the federal government seeking Indigenous consultation, a new public survey, which was released online this week and can be filled out anonymously, will help to clarify SCO’s priorities related to the justice system and it asks for feedback on issues like prevention, policing, courts, corrections and victim’s services.

SCO Grand Chief Jerry Daniels said the organization, which represents 34 First Nations communities in southern Manitoba, continues to be alarmed by the number of Indigenous people in this province involved in the justice system, and they hope that direct feedback from citizens could help lead to strategies that bring those numbers down.

In Manitoba, it is estimated that 70 to 80% of adults currently in custody are Indigenous and according to SCO in the last 10 years there has been a 60% increase in the rates of incarceration of Indigenous men and a 139% increase in the rates of incarceration of Indigenous women in this province.

Indigenous youth are also significantly overrepresented in the criminal justice system and in incarceration rates as data from a Statistics Canada study released in 2018 showed that 81% of boys and 82% of girls incarcerated as minors in Manitoba were Indigenous.

“One of my principal mandates is to reduce the overrepresentation of First Nation citizens within the Canadian criminal justice system,” Daniels said in a media release.

“The goal of this survey is to provide our community members with a voice to help develop alternative measures for care that revolve around accountability and personal growth, rather than the current punitive measures of the colonial state.

“The results of this survey will provide First Nations leadership in southern Manitoba with guidance on how we can work to restore balance, health and real justice for our people.”

SCO said they have also worked in exact years to create their own First Nation’s Justice Strategy, and that strategy includes a focus on restorative justice measures and on offering supports and programs that can prevent people from becoming involved in the justice system and prevent them from reoffending.

SCO also has a Restorative Justice Program that serves several southern Manitoba First Nations, and currently has dedicated community justice workers in six of those communities.

“As a leader, I am responsible for working with our Anishinaabe and Dakota Nations, and the more than 81,500 citizens SCO represents to create a more just Manitoba,” Daniels said.

The survey, which consists of 16 questions, can be found by visiting surveymonkey.com/r/SCO-IJS, and scheduled to remain open until Dec. 18.

No identifying information will be collected as part of this survey, and all responses are completely confidential, SCO added.

Killexams : Analysts on Kingdom’s SCO observer status bid
Content image - Phnom Penh Post

Prime Minister Hun Sen meets with Zhang Ming, secretary-general of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), to discuss Cambodia’s candidacy. SPM

During the ASEAN Summit and related meetings in Phnom Penh on November 11, Prime Minister Hun Sen met with Zhang Ming, secretary-general of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) to discuss Cambodia’s candidacy and readiness to attain SCO observer status, a step-up from its role as a dialogue partner which the Kingdom has held since 2015.

International observers said expansion into the SCO – a Eurasian intergovernmental organisation currently consisting of eight member states including China, Russia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan – will strengthen Cambodia’s role in the world order, including in regional and global affairs.

It will also strengthen the multilateralism mechanisms that Cambodia adheres to, as the SCO – founded in 2001 with a focus on regional security issues, fight against regional terrorism, ethnic separatism and religious extremism – serves as a balance to the world’s challenging geopolitical environment.

Kin Phea, director of the Royal Academy of Cambodia’s International Relations Institute, said that attaining SCO observer status is important for Cambodia to further cement its multilateral principles and security strategies.

“What Cambodia has always practiced in its foreign policy is the principle of multilateralism and adherence to international laws. SCO cooperation is an important multilateral mechanism, with political, security and economic benefits for the Kingdom,” he added.

He highlighted that the SCO has a wide range of member countries, all of which have economic, energy, political and strategic potential that could benefit Cambodia through economic and diplomatic channels, among others.

“As an SCO observer, Cambodia could strengthen its role in regional and global affairs, as the SCO discusses major international issues at the global level. This would lead to the emergence of Cambodia’s voice in regional cooperation,” he added.

Obtaining membership would not be an issue for Cambodia, as the organisation included China, a close friend, as well as other members which already have good relationships with the Kingdom, said Phea.

The SCO was established in Shanghai in 2001 with six original members: China and five former Soviet republics, namely Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

The SCO’s main purpose is to cooperate on matters of security and the economy. Members regularly hold joint anti-terrorism exercises and cooperate in sharing security information.

The organisation added India, Pakistan in 2017. In 2021, it approved Iran’s application for accession, with the date for its full membership yet to be confirmed. Its dialogue partners include Turkey, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar and Cambodia.

According a press release by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Hun Sen stated that since becoming a dialogue partner, Cambodia has contributed to promoting ASEAN-SCO cooperation, underlining the Kingdom’s active engagement in different regional and international organisations with the aim of strengthening friendships and maintaining peace, stability and security.

Yang Peou, secretary-general of the Royal Academy of Cambodia, said the SCO’s first charter was aimed at security and political cooperation, but in the current geopolitical scope, the organisation plays a large role in the economic matters.

He said the organisation – whose member states account for about 30 per cent of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP), cover approximately 60 per cent of the world’s territory and account for about 3.4 billion people, or 43 per cent of the world’s population – has enormous military power, with key members China and Russia being nuclear powers. Other member states including India, Iran and Pakistan are developing nuclear technology, although not in line with UN principles.

“As a sovereign state, Cambodia’s desire to join with this organisation does not denote military ambitions that should disturb the West. It will raise the Kingdom’s profile as a dialogue partner in the region and promote better economic, political, diplomatic and military exchanges,” Peou added, explaining Cambodia’s motivation.

Killexams : Iran parliament passes SCO membership bill

TEHRAN – Iranian lawmakers passed on Sunday a bill allowing Iran to become a full member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

A majority of lawmakers -203 - voted yes to the bill while only three lawmakers voted no. Four lawmakers abstained from voting. 

The passed bill allows the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to sign and accept dozens of SCO agreements and documents. 

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian hailed the passing of the bill. “Parliament’s decisive vote in favor of the bill of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization is indicative of our country’s seriousness and determination to develop regional, international and economic cooperation and enhance the pivot to Asia,” the foreign minister said on Twitter. 

He added, “Multilateral approach is the reality of this century.”

Iran became the 9th member of the SCO in mid-September during the 21st Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), held in the Tajik capital Dushanbe.

At that summit, the leaders of the eight main members of the organization agreed to change the membership of the Islamic Republic of Iran from an observer member to a full member and signed the relevant documents. Accordingly, the technical process of Iran becoming one of the main members of the organization began and Iran started cooperating and interacting with member countries as the main member of the important regional organization.

Iranian President Ayatollah Seyed Ebrahim Raisi delivered a speech at the Dushanbe summit and praised Iran’s membership in the SCO. 

“Signing the memorandum of commitments of the Islamic Republic of Iran in this meeting and becoming a member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization is an important step in the field of regional and international politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Certainly, with the active and effective presence of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the activities of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, this membership will be recorded as one of the most important developments in the history of this Organization,” Raisi said in the speech. 

Iranian officials have framed Iran’s membership as a rebuttal to the West and its pressures against Tehran. 

Iranian lawmaker Jalil Rahimi Jahan Abadi said in remarks to IRNA that Iran’s membership in the SCO amounted to the failure of the West’s policy of pressure and isolation against Iran.

“Iran's membership in Shanghai means breaking the policy of isolation and Western pressure. This issue can create better conditions for Iran in negotiations and in the international arena,” he said in late September.

Rahimi Jahan Abadi, who is sitting on the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, described the SCO as one of the biggest economic, political and security treaties in Central and Eastern Asia. “The presence of China and Russia, two countries with veto power in the UN Security Council, and countries such as India, Pakistan, and Uzbekistan have set the conditions in such a way that Iran's presence in this organization is important due to the type of international interactions and the pressure that the Westerners exert against our country,” he stated.

Killexams : Prospects for India’s Presidency of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO)

Dr Pravesh Kumar Gupta

India shares a close historical and cultural relationship with Central Asia, which it maintained until its partition and the foundation of Pakistan in 1947. Conflicts between New Delhi and Islamabad have seriously hampered connectivity between India and Central Asia. As a result, one of India’s key motives for joining the SCO was reconnecting with Eurasian nations through this multi-alignment regional organisation. Cooperation in Afghanistan is another important component of India’s SCO agenda. Because of Afghanistan’s volatile status, the region has been plagued by a myriad of problems, including terrorism, extremism, drug trafficking, and transnational crime. SCO provides a forum for combating these challenges jointly and offering some solutions.

Prime Minister Modi described extremism as the root cause of regional problems in his speech at the 20th SCO summit in 2021. According to him, the Central Asian region has been an epicentre of progressive ideology. Sufism, for example, has flourished here for centuries and spread throughout the region and the world. Therefore, the SCO should develop a common blueprint to combat radicalism and extremism based on Central Asia’s historical heritage. Prime Minister Modi also suggested that the moderate, tolerant, and inclusive Islamic institutions and traditions that exist in India and almost all SCO countries should assist the SCO in developing a strong network among them in order to deal with radicalization smoothly. India will hold the SCO presidency for 2022–2023. This is a crucial opportunity for New Delhi to pursue its main goals of joining the SCO and giving its membership a new dimension.

Prime Minister Modi used the term SECURE in his statement at the 21st SCO Summit, which stands for citizen security, economic growth, regional connectivity, unity, respect for sovereignty and integrity, and environmental protection. In the rapidly changing geopolitical landscape of the Eurasian region, initiatives suggested by PM Modi should be at the forefront of New Delhi’s priorities under its SCO presidency.

India has advanced many important ideas in SCO Summits since becoming a permanent member of this regional organisation in 2017. India’s suggestion to establish an SCO Startup Forum was one of those initiatives that were implemented. The First SCO Startup Forum featured one plenary session and six simultaneous activity zones, with 11 different activities taking place in three languages: English, Mandarin, and Russian. The Forum also drew global interest, with over 2,600 observers from 60 countries and six continents registering for the SCO Startup Forum. The Second SCO Startup Forum, held via video conference on October 27-28, 2021, was hosted by the Government of India’s Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade in collaboration with the SCO Secretariat.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), among other interaction mechanisms, provides an important platform for India to maintain dialogue and discussion with Central Asian leaders. New Delhi should optimise its Central Asia strategy during India’s SCO presidency. To counter China’s influence in the SCO and the Central Asian region, India must be proactive. India can also make significant contributions to the hard power capacity development of Central Asian nations. Joint defence manufacturing should be prioritised in addition to combined military exercises and training.

India-Russia cooperation in Central Asia has much potential in the context of Moscow’s waning influence in the region. To Improve commerce and trade with the Eurasian region, the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the Eurasian Economic Union could be considered as soon as possible.As part of India’s Central Asian policy, FTAs with specific countries in the region should also be prioritised. Digital cooperation offers a lot of promise for India-Central Asia relations.This is an area where New Delhi can outperform other countries. SCO can also play an important role in promoting India’s cultural heritage (Yoga), traditional medicine (Ayurveda), and educational potential.

INSTC and Chabahar should be promoted to increase trade with the region. In this context, a few issues, such as Indian banks’ unwillingness to work in Chabahar port, must be addressed soon.Since Pakistan and India joined the SCO, it has been expanding.Iran has joined SCO as a full member, which will significantly impact this organization.Iran’s role as a link between India and Central Asia cannot be overstated. As a result, increasing multifaceted cooperation between India and Iran should be an important component of India’s Central Asian strategy.The larger SCO now has greater visibility and political and economic development potential. Cultural trends will be reenergized as a result of this extension. Because Central Asia is a landlocked region, the entry of states like India and Iran to the SCO has not only improved communication between South, Central, and West Asia. Still, it will also strengthen Central Asian strategic autonomy. The expansion of the SCO may provide a potential balancing agent to dominant powers such as Russia and China for Central Asian countries.

The Indian presidency of the SCO has a lot of potential. New Delhi needs to emphasise shared cultural heritage as a unifying factor because it is a civilizational state and has close ties to all of the member nations. Second, challenges related to connectivity and trade development should be seriously discussed. India’s presidency must navigate a complex agenda while producing tangible results.

Killexams : SCO names Yeh Tsung as conductor emeritus, Quek Ling Kiong as principal conductor

SINGAPORE – Maestro Yeh Tsung, who has helmed the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) for 20 years, will step down as music director and be appointed conductor emeritus starting 2023.

SCO’s resident conductor Quek Ling Kiong will be promoted to principal conductor at the same time.

Announcing this on Wednesday, SCO said the slate of new appointments are part of its leadership renewal and succession planning.

When Yeh, 72, was first appointed by SCO two decades ago, the Shanghai-born, Western-trained conductor was the world’s first music director to lead a symphony orchestra – the South Bend Symphony Orchestra in the United States – and a Chinese orchestra across two continents concurrently.

Quek, 55, was appointed SCO’s resident conductor in 2013, and Singapore National Youth Chinese Orchestra’s music director in 2016. He will plan the new SCO concert season from July 2023. 

SCO chairman Ng Siew Quan expressed his gratitude to Yeh for his leadership of the SCO, and for building the SCO into the world-class Chinese orchestra that it is today.

“We are very pleased that maestro Tsung Yeh has agreed to continue contributing to SCO as conductor emeritus. I also congratulate Ling Kiong on his new appointment and wish him success in his new capacity,” said Mr Ng.

Three musicians will also be appointed as section leaders overseeing the respective sections of the orchestra to ensure the highest artistic standards.

They are concertmaster Li Baoshun (strings section), dizi principal Yin Zhiyang (winds and percussion section) and sanxian associate principal Huang Guifang (plucked strings section). Eight SCO veteran musicians, including the three section leaders, will be concurrently appointed members of the SCO’s music advisory panel to provide artistic advice on programme curation, and selection of guest artists and conductors.

Mr Ng said that going forward, SCO’s artistic leadership will be driven collectively by the conductors, section leaders and music advisory panel.

In an earlier interview with The Straits Times, Yeh, a 2013 Cultural Medallion recipient, said that while he will continue conducting for another 10 years or so, he hopes to catch up on his research and writing on conducting to impart his knowledge to the younger generation.  He will also be spending more time with his family, including his 98-year-old mother, wife Wong Sau Lan, three children and his grandson Moonji.

Lavrov also noted that cultural and humanitarian cooperation is developing within the SCO framework.

MOSCOW, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday praised the role of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and voiced confidence in its future development.

The SCO has completed its original task of ensuring order on the borders between the Central Asian countries, China and Russia, Lavrov said here during a press conference after talks with Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar.

"As the SCO evolves, it has started to pay more attention to countering new challenges and threats, such as terrorism, separatism and extremism, and to using its comparative advantages, being located on a large part of the Eurasian continent," Lavrov said.

"The SCO member countries are interested in using these advantages to further develop their economic ties, expand trade flows and create additional transport infrastructure that will minimize costs and, accordingly, increase profits and benefit each one of our countries," he added.

He said the use of the Northern Sea Route, a shipping line in the Arctic connecting Russia's European part with the Far East, will open up impressive prospects for the SCO.

He also noted that cultural and humanitarian cooperation is developing within the SCO framework.

Killexams : Iranian parliament approves bill for Iran's accession to SCO

TEHRAN -- The Iranian parliament on Sunday approved a bill for Iran's membership to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

The bill was approved by the overwhelming majority of the lawmakers, according to the report.

Abolfazl Amouei, the spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of parliament, said that the parliament's approval of Iran's membership to the SCO contains an international message of "Iran's multilateralism tendency in the field of foreign policy."

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian welcomed the parliament's move on Twitter, saying that "the categorical vote for the bill on the accession of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the SCO is indicative of our country's resolve and seriousness to develop regional, international and economic cooperation and bolster (the country's) approach to Asia."

"The approach of multilateralism is the reality of this century," he said.

In September 2021, the 21st summit of the SCO leaders in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, declared the decision to start admitting Iran as a full member of the SCO from an observer.
