SCO Summit: India inducted into organisation, Narendra Modi meets Afghan President

The presidents also signed an SCO convention on countering extremism and adopted a statement of the bloc's leaders about their countries' joint fight against worldwide terrorism.

"Terrorism is a major threat to humanity". President Ashraf Ghani called for joint efforts against terrorism and said those countries which differentiate between good terrorists and bad terrorists will pay the price for it.

India on 9 June 2017 became a full member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) ending the administrative procedures that started two years ago.

Founded in 2001, the SCO now has China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan as its full members, with Afghanistan, Belarus, Iran and Mongolia as observers, and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Turkey as dialogue partners.

The Indian Prime Minister thanked the Chinese president for his support to India's accession to the SCO. "We look forward to working with member countries for progress, prosperity and connectivity in the region", said Pankaj Patel, President, Ficci.

PM Modi also expressed his gratitude towards the other member countries that supported India's membership to SCO.

Prime Minister Modi is in the Kazakh capital to attend the two-day summit of SCO, which is a consortium focussing on security and trade.

Prime Minister Modi is also set to hold a bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. We want connectivity to pave way for enhancing cooperation and confidence among the societies and young people. Both the leaders discussed India-China relations and how to further improve ties.

During the meeting, Modi said India and China should tap their potential in cooperation, strengthen communication and coordination in global affairs, respect each other's core concerns and appropriately handle their disputes.

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". "The mega project will benefit the SCO community", he said.
