The Executive Committee of the SCO RATS is steadily increasing cooperation with external partners - specialized structures of international and regional organizations.

These measures are being taken as part of the implementation of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, unanimously approved by the UN General Assembly in 2006 in the form of a resolution and an attached Action Plan.

The activities of the SCO RATS in this direction are important for the development of the common efforts of the world community in coordinating joint actions to maintain an appropriate level of security at the regional and global levels.

In cooperation with external partners, RATS is traditionally guided by systematic and programmatic approaches, which are enshrined in the relevant documents. These are, in particular, the three-year Cooperation Programs of the SCO member states in the fight against terrorism, separatism and extremism, as well as various joint measures and plans of the SCO RATS.

On September 17, 2017, the SCO RATS Council approved Measures to improve the effectiveness of cooperation between the SCO RATS and international organizations performing tasks to combat terrorism, separatism and extremism.

In pursuance of this Decision, the SCO RATS legally formalized its partnership relations with major global and regional organizations by signing the following international legal documents:
