The message reads, in part:
“Cooperation within the SCO is constantly expanding, enriched with new ideas and projects. Today, young scientists, businesspeople and public activists from many countries have gathered in the Altai Territory. The forum’s busy programme and its highly respected participants are strong evidence of a growing interest among young people in the SCO member states, observer states and dialogue partners in multifaceted and mutually beneficial cooperation.
I am confident that cooperation between the SCO member states has sound and rich prospects, and a secure future which is to be built by the younger generation. I sincerely hope that this forum will make a great contribution to strengthening understanding, trust and respect between our nations, and will further strengthen the role of the SCO as an authoritative international organisation.”
