The SCO was created as a regional International Organization at a moment of US global hegemony. Was the SCO created to counter US hegemony?

The SCO as an influential and responsible member of the modern system of international relations, will continue building up its contribution to ensuring peace and security and settling international and regional conflicts solely by the political and diplomatic methods based on the principles of equality, respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity and non-interference in internal affairs of states, and renunciation of the use or threat of force.
