RATS SCO Warns Of Merger Between ISIS and Al Qaeda



RATS SCO or Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) has warned about the merger of ISIS and Al Qaeda. The RATS SCO works to strengthen the bond between SCO nations to jointly combat terrorism, separatism and extremism.

Jihadi Groups in Kashmir and Pakistan are Un-Islamic – The ISIS Narrative

A possible alliance of the terror organizations ISIS and Al Qaeda is a new potential threat to the regional security, Director of the Executive Committee of the Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (RATS SCO) Yevgeniy Sysoyev has said.


Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) expanded with the inclusion of India and Pakistan

As EurAsian Times reported earlier, reports are coming from Central Asian countries bordering Afghanistan that the numbers of Islamists units are increasing in the region.

On May 25, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolay Patrushev announced that the number of militants in northern Afghanistan has touched 15,000-20,000.


The Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure (RATS), headquartered in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, is a permanent part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) which works to strengthen cooperation of SCO members to fight terrorism, separatism and extremism.

The Head of RATS SCO is elected for a three-year term. Each member state also sends a permanent representative to RATS.

Uzbekistan a Key Cog in the Wheel for India’s Central Asia Policy

The RATS was formed in the June 2004 summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) which was held in Tashkent. RATS is involved in boosting collaboration and relations between member nations regarding terrorism, security, drug trafficking, crime and cyberwarfare.

The SCO is the biggest regional organisation as per the population and the geographic landmass it covers. The SCO member nations include China, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, India and Pakistan.
