Chinese President Xi Jinping and his counterparts from other members of the Eurasian group were present at the summit.
The meeting of the SCO Heads of State Council is aimed at further strengthening their relations and practical cooperation among the group's six members and coordinating their stances on key global and regional affairs, the report said.
Xi is scheduled to deliver a speech at the summit, his first since taking over the Chinese presidency in March, to expound China's policy.
The SCO leaders are expected to sign a joint declaration, ratify a series of documents, issue a press release and witness the signing of a technology cooperation agreement.
The SCO, an inter-governmental organization founded in Shanghai in 2001, groups China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
It also has Afghanistan, India, Iran, Mongolia and Pakistan as observers, and Belarus, Sri Lanka and Turkey as dialogue partners.
