Beyond the importance of economic issues in the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization's plans and paying attention to the category of transportation and creating favorable transit conditions with the aim of development of Iran's trade, it is possible to point out the other capacities of this organization in the fields of science ,technology, culture, agriculture, tourism and creating favorable conditions in the field of custom’s cooperation with member and observer states which this important, according to the cooperation agreements and non-security action that have been signed among the members of the group and its supervisors, could be followed up and and achieved in the form of "Shanghai medium-term development program" which is a part of its long-term agreement. .

The countries of the Eurasian region (especially the countries bordering the Caspian Sea) can be an effective way to exit economic bottlenecks and as a window of hope to increase trade and country's economy mending.


One of the expected profit from Iran's membership at the Shanghai organizations is that the Europeans have get down of their hostile positions to attract Iran's attention in order to prevent Iran tends to the east  .and go toward the west.

Of course, this is one of the possibilities that comes up . Evidences suggests that the European are interested in attracting  Iran's opinion more and prevent Iran .from  tending to eastward
