Next forum: Shanghai Cooperation Organization

On June 15, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization will meet in Shanghai. CFR has a summary of the organization. Kofi Annan has issued a statement praising SCO, which was covered in the Chinese press.

SCO is a 10 year old regional organization for Central Asia, focusing on security, energy, and counter-terrorism. It is, however, interesting that a Central Asian organization is named after a Chinese city on the Pacific. In any case, SCO is seen increasingly as strengthening the hand of China in Central Asia, expanding their influence through investments, oil agreements, security agreements, etc. US consevatives have variously viewed this with great suspicion and as a way to organize anti-Americanism.

With respect to the UNSG race, SCO is a regional grouping without a candidate for UNSG. (ASEAN has Sathirathai. SAARC has Dhanapala, Tharoor, and Deva. And the various Middle East organizations have Prince Zaid. In some sense, Ban Ki-moon is a candidate without a supportive grouping) So far, Uzbekistan has endorsed Ban Ki-moon. Our understanding is that the Kazahks have been quietly advocating for another candidate. This could be an important opportunity for surrogates to discuss their candidates. However, unlike NAM, ACD, and other recent ministerials, there will only be a handleful of countries represented.

It is unlikely that there will be announcements at the end of this. However do look for Foreign Ministers and Prime Ministers traveling to Seoul, Bangkok, and other capitals in the next several weeks if there is followup from these meetings.

It does not appear that much candidate action occurred, but the Chinese press reports that the declaration had good stuff on reform and the UN: "The SCO holds that the United Nations, the universal and the most representative and authoritative international organization, is entrusted with primary responsibility in international affairs and is at the core of formulating and implementing the basic norms of international law," […]

    As stated previously, construction took place in close proximity to Mouser employees who were carrying on normal company operations. This drove several adjustments to our normal construction processes but it also created a potential safety hazard. Administrative personnel are not trained in the risks of working near demolition or construction, nor are they equipped with safety gear like hard hats or steel-toed boots. We were forced to pay close attention to places where Mouser work and construction work interacted.
