Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, arrived on Wednesday in Astana, capital of Kazakhstan, leading the UAE delegation to the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit.

Kazakhstan is hosting the two-day summit under the theme: “Strengthening multilateral dialogue - the pursuit of sustainable peace and development’’, from July 3 - 4.
Heads of state and government of Member States, as well as representatives of regional and international organisations will participate in the summit.

Established on June 15, 2001 a permanent intergovernmental international organisation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation aims to strengthen mutual trust, friendship and good-neighbourliness between the Member States; encourage the effective cooperation between the Member States in such spheres as politics, trade, economy, science and technology, culture, education, energy, transport, tourism, environmental protection, etc; and jointly ensure and maintain peace, security and stability in the region.
