Rouhani to visit Kyrgyzstan Thursday

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is scheduled to visit Kyrgyzstan on Thursday to take part in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit, according to his office.

After attending SCO summit, the Iranian president will travel to Tajikistan to attend the 5th summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA), said Parviz Esmaeili, the director of the presidential office for communications and information, IRNA reported.

Kyrgyz officials say the presidents of Iran, Afghanistan, Belarus and Mongolia have been invited to the conference as observers, noting that 20 regional and international documents will be signed at the conclusion of the summit.

Known as a major Eurasian political and economic alliance, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization was established in June 2001 in Shanghai by the leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

The upcoming CICA summit in Dushanbe, slated for June 14 and 15, is designed to serve as a platform for discussing and resolving problems in Asia, as well as for promoting initiatives and finding effective mechanisms at a high level.
