Pakistani PM Sharif congratulates India on joining SCO

The heads of state support the SCO to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation with its observers and dialogue partners, the communique said.

Indian premier Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif shook hands and exchanged greetings late Thursday at the opening of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) meeting in Astana.

In addition to this, Pakistan also became the full member of SCO. Respect to sovereignty and regional integrity is necessary.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the organization could play an important role in bringing peace in Afghanistan.

New Delhi opposes OBOR as one of its component, China Pakistan Economic Corridor, infringes on the sovereignty of India since it passes through areas New Delhi accuses Islamabad of illegally occupying in Kashmir. After the meeting, Modi tweeted, "Met President Xi Jinping". "India and Pakistan are now members of the SCO".

Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif along with his delegation attended the meeting of the Heads of State Council of SCO.

Sharif thanked the founding members for their "staunch support" for his country's entry into the organisation, which he hailed as "an anchor of stability in the region".

Advisor to the prime minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz Saturday said Pakistan would be soon at the center stage of massive trade activities as it gained the full membership of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

The SCO collaborates on trade, economy, connectivity, energy, transport, banking and security.

On last day of the summit, the members also signed a declaration against terrorism.

He said the development of the SCO will mean development of a huge section of the world's population. "Unless all the countries launch coordinate efforts against them, then it is not possible to combat these problems", said Prime Minister Modi.

The case has received wide attention in Chinese media and underlined the concerns in China even as the government goes ahead with major investments in Pakistan. With the expansion of the grouping, the SCO will now represent over 40 per cent of global population and almost 20 per cent of the global GDP.

The SCO, which includes China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, now has India and Pakistan as its newest members. Astana Declaration was, later, released at the end of the summit.

He also called for honest cooperation of regional countries and expansion of relations in regional level.
