Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has invited his Iranian counterpart to participate in an upcoming Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit. 

Iran’s ambassador to Russia, Mahmoud Reza Sadjadi, was quoted as saying by IRNA on Monday that President Ahmadinejad would attend the summit, which will be held in Russia’s Yekaterinburg city. 

Iran, an observer member since 2005, has been seeking to join the 9-year-old international organization since 2008. 

The SCO summit, will come at a time when the military alliance of European and North American states (NATO) plans to increase its influence in ex-Soviet nations, such as Georgia. 

Formed in 2001, the SCO aims to act as a counterweight to NATO’s influence in Eurasia and to oppose US interference in Central Asia by developing regional security cooperation between its member states – China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. 

India, Iran, Mongolia and Pakistan currently hold observer status in the organization.

    Zionist neocon propaganda has reached the stage where the American people are about to take the war on Iran for granted.

    American Jewish neocons are repeating their Iraq scenario for Iran.

    Its as if Israel is to be the nuclear power in the sea of Islam with all surrounding Muslim countries to reduced to the status of Gaza.

    The insulting way President Ahmadinejad has been treated by the US is a shame on the American people.

    For years the purposefully mistranslated “wipe Israel off the map” has been put out there in the American media by all American Pundits who seem to compete for points for in their support of right wing Israeli carnage against Muslims.

    President Ahmadinejad wrote the letter to G.W.Bush and was ignored.

    President Ahmadinejad came to Columbia University N.Y. and explained EVERYTHING but all that was allowed in the US media was about how dreadful gays were treated in Iran.

    This US war on Islam which Obama insultingly denied has been orchestrated by the usual neocon suspects on behalf of Israel.

    Jews comprise 0.2% of the Worlds population and Islam 23 % so now the USA has to be “organized” for a war on 23 % of the World’s population.

    Hope you are ready —-Big Brother is preparing us for a “War” on Iran — just like Iraq –folks ! ! !
