Iran membership in SCO to reduce Western pressures: Russian academic staff

Moscow, IRNA – The head of Moscow State University believes that Iran’s September 17 membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) will reduce the West's pressures on the country.

The membership will also have a positive impact on the structure of Iran’s foreign economic cooperation, Andrey Sidorov told IRNA on Sunday.

Iran, already an observer at the SCO, became its permanent member on Friday.

Iran’s membership in the Organization creates new opportunities for the country to face unilateral, illegitimate, and unfair sanctions, Sidorov said.

Iran has considerable experiences in dealing with the sanctions, so it can use them in its cooperation with SCO member countries, he added.

On September 17, Iran joined the SCO which had eight members, including China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan before the date.

As the Russian academic staff said, the SCO by its successes can prevent the dominating system, the US in particular.

In the future, the SCO will play a leading role in establishment of multi-polar system, he underlined.
