Russian UN Envoy: no obstacles left for Iran to become SCO member

There are no obstacles to Iran becoming a member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) after its nuclear issue was resolved, Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said, Sputnik reports.

On Friday, the UN Security Council held a session on the issue of the organization’s cooperation with regional formats such as the SCO, the Commonwealth of Independent States and the Collective Security Treaty Organization.

"We consider there are no obstacles left for a positive consideration of its [Iran’s] membership application after the resolution of the situation on Iran’s nuclear program and lifting of the UN sanctions," Churkin said.
