Iranian lawmakers approve bill of memorandum of obligations on Iran's SCO membership

Tehran, Feb 8 (IANS): The Iranian parliament on Tuesday approved the bill of the memorandum of obligations on Iran's membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), according to Iran's IRIB news agency.
