The President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev met with the Secretaries of the Security Councils of the SCO member states. SCO Secretary-General Bolat Nurgalijev, Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev, Aide to the President – Minister of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan Kairbek Suleimenov, Minister of Public Security of PRC Meng Jianzhu, Secretary of the Security Council of the Kyrgyz Republic Adhan Madumarov, Secretary of the Security Council of the Republic of Tajikistan Amirkul Azimov and Secretary of the National Security Council under the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Murod Ataev took part in it.

In his opening speech Russia's leader underlined that in the SCO region there are a lot of “actual questions of security assurance,” such as “crime fighting, including narcotic crime, questions of regional safeguarding in the context of the problems that we have together with a number of neighboring states and that create tension to a certain degree around our countries, as well as a lot of other questions.” He noted that “the general security situation is influenced by the economic crisis that is not possible to exclude either from the factors having direct impact on the security theme.”

The President of Russia expressed his hope that the results achieved in the course of consultations of the Secretaries of the SCO member states Security Councils “will be used during the main event” – the SCO summit in Yekaterinburg.

At the meeting with Dmitry Medvedev the Secretaries of the Security Councils discussed actual security questions in the SCO member states, in particular, struggle against terrorism and illicit traffic in narcotic drugs, financial security in conditions of global economic crisis.

At the meeting a decision was made to intensify the SCO countries’ efforts in creation of an "anti-narcotic and financial security belt” around Afghanistan, as well as conducting the international Channel operation under the guidance of CSTO. As was underlined by Russia's Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, “the SCO development is one of the priorities of the Russian foreign policy.”
