Pakistan successfully fought twin evils of terrorism, extremism: PM tells SCO summit

A day before, Prime Minister Modi met Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the 17th Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit and discussed bilateral relations where the latter pointed out that the worldwide environment was undergoing profound and complex changes.

Along with India, Pakistan has also joined the SCO as a full member state.

The topic of this week's Majlis was the latest summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in the Kazakh capital, Astana, on June 9.

He assured that China will contribute with an additional 10 million yuan ($1.47 million USD) to the SCO Secretariat in order to facilitate its work.

After PM Modi's address, India & Pakistan were declared full members of the SCO.

We must continue the good tradition of solidarity and coordination, he stated.

Impossible to reach a solution till all make concerted efforts, on radicalisation, terrorist recruitment/training/financing issues.

Hua, however, said the incident "has no necessary connection" either with the Belt and Road Initiative or the SCO gathering and that Pakistan "pays great attention to the protection of Chinese citizens and institutions and has made great efforts in this regard". By becoming a full SCO member, India now stands to gain in the spheres of security, economy, trade, investment, connectivity and energy co-operation.

The bloc's summit was hosted by the Kazakhistan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev at the independence palace, where Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif were also present. "Where we have differences, it is important that they should not become disputes and if handled well these could even be opportunities", said Mr. Jaishankar, briefing the media following the bilateral talks between the two leaders. "It is also important to ensure inclusivity and sustainability", the Prime Minister said.

The two presidents had a bilateral meeting ahead of the 17th SCO summit in Astana, Kazakhstan. Xi's snub comes after deep disappointment and grief felt in China over the killings, after two Chinese teachers were kidnapped in Quetta last month and were reportedly murdered by Islamic State terrorists.
