    The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), a potent regional alliance dominated by China and Russia, has gained a new member in Saudi Arabia.

    During a meeting on Tuesday presided over by King Salman bin Abdulaziz, the Cabinet accepted a note on joining the SCO as a discussion partner, according to the official Saudi News Agency.

    China, Russia, and the Central Asian nations of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan created the SCO in June 2001.

    The Eurasian Political, Economic, and Security Alliance, which has eight members, four observer governments, and a number of conversation partners, including Turkey, is acknowledged as the largest regional alliance in the world.

    In 2017, Pakistan and India were admitted as full members.

    Iran, a member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) since June 2005, signed a memorandum of commitment for full membership in 2022 after having its permanent membership confirmed in September of that year.
