Entry of India, Pakistan strengthens security cooperation of SCO: Chinese official

Membership to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization will strengthen India’s relations with Central Asia

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani walks to his vehicle after walking out from the airplane upon his arrival at Qingdao Liuting International Airport in Qingdao, China´s Shandong province on June 8, 2018, where he is to take part in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), 18th annual summit.

SCO nations may discuss the potential of a joint free trade area, she said, as China also pushes for participation in its Belt and Road global infrastructure project. In the meeting, the two leaders will take stock of the implementation of decisions taken at the informal summit just over a month ago in Wuhan.

India said previous year that China had not stuck to an agreement to share hydrological data, or scientific information on the movement, distribution and quality of water for the Brahmaputra river.

Officials said India will pitch for evolving effective ways to deal with the growing challenge of terrorism and enhancing security cooperation among SCO countries.

Diplomats from several member countries said all these issues may figure at the summit as well as during deliberations on its sidelines.

Trade, investment and development cooperation issues will also feature prominently at the SCO, Murphy said, given the climate of "rising anti-globalisation and strains on global multilateral economic institutions", stoked by Trump's nationalist "America First" policy.

Recalling that he and Prime Minister Modi successfully had an informal meeting and reached important consensus in Wuhan, President Xi said the meeting had been well received by both countries and the worldwide community, and a positive atmosphere is taking shape to pay close attention to and support the development of China-India relations.

The entry of India and Pakistan could pave the way for greater three-way cooperation between India, China and Pakistan, former Chinese Ambassador to India and Pakistan Zhou Gang, told India Today.

The SCO has two sub-divisions including Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure (RATS) and SCO Secretariat.

PM Modi is expected to hold about six bilateral meetings with leaders of other SCO countries.

However, there is no official word on whether there will be any interaction between Modi and Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain, who is scheduled to attend the meeting in China. China is gambling its diplomatic credibility on the chance it can facilitate better relations between India and Pakistan at the SCO summit.
