Abstract.

For today's global politics the strategic partnership between Russia and China is growing important including their cooperation within international global and regional organisations. The countries most actively cooperate within The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Despite the initial unity of these countries' opinions regarding the development of SCO, currently they face disagreements that became clear when India and Pakistan joined SCO in 2015. The aim of the present research is to describe the process of interaction between these two countries as part of The Shanghai Cooperation Organization after India and Pakistan joined it. To achieve the aim, the author of the article nalyzed the legal basis of their bilateral relations, main achievements and problems arising in the process of their interaction, uniting factors and points of disagreements between China and Russia as part of SCO, and their views on India and Pakistan joining The Organisation. The methodological basis of the research included analytical and systems approaches. Such methodology allowed a more argumented and objective analysis of the problem, in particular, what causes differences in opinions of Rusia and China as part of SCO. The author also applied the method of comparison to analyze approaches of different scientists on defining geopolitical interests of states in the region and international system in general. The author concludes that SCO activity still remains one of the most important bilateral interaction mechanism in the region and promotes development of the Central Asian Region and reduction of their security issues despite certain differences in opinions between the states.
