Pakistan supports SCO efforts for peaceful Afghanistan, assures PM Abbasi

02 Декабря 2017

Prime Ministers' Meeting, in Zhengzhou, China earlier this year.

With Lashkar-e-TOiba chief Hafiz Saeed released from custody in Pakistan and Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar roaming around freely there, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is likely to call for concerted regional and global efforts to combat terrorism, as she attends the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO). Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is also participating in the SCO retreat being hosted by the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

At present, the SCO comprised of eight member states, including Pakistan, China, Russia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. In June, India along with Pakistan had become a full- fledged member of the SCO. The retreat would be followed by a plenary session of the CHG, where Abbasi would deliver a speech.

He reaffirmed Afghanistan's political will and commitment to the SCO objectives in enhancing regional connectivity and contributing towards security, stability, economic growth and prosperity of our entire region.

"We also look forward to working with member states on SCO's development strategy and important initiatives such as the China-led Silk Road Economic Belt and other similar integration platforms", he stated.

Pakistan has been an observer with the SCO since 2005 and applied for its full membership in 2010. But there are still no plans to have a bilateral meeting with Pakistani leaders.

"EAM @SushmaSwaraj leaves for Sochi, Russia to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Heads of Government Meeting - home to 42 % of world's population and 20% of its GDP".
