Kazakh PM: Iran's Presence Promotes SCO Status

Masimov made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday.

The Iranian president arrived in Astana airport at midday and was welcomed by top Kazakh officials, including the country's premier, upon arrival.

Astana hosts the 10th SCO heads-of-state summit.

At the meeting, Masimov voiced pleasure in Ahmadinejad's participation in the summit, and said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran's presence in the SCO summit, no doubt, promotes the importance and stand of this meeting, because Iran enjoys a special position in the region today."

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is an intergovernmental organization which was founded in 2001 in Shanghai, China, by the Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Russian, Tajik, Uzbek and Chinese heads of state.

Iran currently holds an observer status in the group and applied for full membership in a request filed on March 24, 2008.

SCO member governments include China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, as well as four formally designated observer countries, namely Iran, India, Mongolia and Pakistan.
