Shanghai Cooperation Organization

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization was founded June 14, 2001 by leaders of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, China, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Goals of this organization included solution of border conflicts and avoiding military conflicts. Meanwhile the war against militant islamism and terrorism started to play an important role.

The SCO revealed itself to be rather ineffective after the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attack. The SCO was unable to develop a coordinated policy against terrorism and was also unable to deal as a collective body with the United States.
