On 10 July 2019, SCO Secretary-General Vladimir Norov met with Special Representative of the European Union for Central Asia Peter Burian on the sidelines of the OSCE Forum for Security Co-operation.

The SCO Secretary-General informed Mr Burian of the outcomes of the SCO Heads of State Council Meeting in Bishkek held on 13 and 14 June 2019, and presented the organisation's main cooperation tracks, as well as joint efforts to ensure regional security and stability, and promote economic, transport, communications and humanitarian cooperation.

Mr Norov said that the SCO was ready to work with the European Union in Central Asia on special programmes designed to counter new threats and challenges, develop trade and transport, and improve the environment.

Mr Burian spoke about the EU's new Central Asia strategy, which prioritises the EU's commitment to partnership as a way to ensure sustainability and prosperity in the region. "In keeping with the goals set out in the strategy, the European Union is ready to play its role as Central Asia's partner as it integrates in the global trade system and seeks deeper regional cooperation," the Special Representative pointed out.

The participants in the meeting outlined the possible areas where they could work together and continue consultations for deepening cooperation between the two organisations.

In its new Central Asia strategy, the EU proposes strengthening its partnership with the region in terms of economic development, inclusive security and stronger cooperation with Central Asia and beyond.
