The parties reportedly issues discussed the ways for joint countering transnational and organized crime, terrorism, extremism and religious and political radicalism.
"Concern was expressed over the escalation of the crises in a number of war-torn countries, the effects of political differences and the deaths of innocent civilians, and the integration of the CIS and SCO member states was identified as an important factor for ensuring security in the territories of states and regions ", the statement said.
