Leaders at Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) praised the results of the One Belt and One Road initiative, however they clarified that the project should be based on mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit. They also noted that granting full SCO membership to India and Pakistan will help facilitate further development of SCO.
The declaration also asked to adhere strictly to the goals and principles of UN Charter, which, if followed, will work to the advantage of New Delhi, who till now has been wary of the initiative as it will be passing through Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) (Indian land claimed forcibly by Pakistan).
India’s long standing agenda, Combating terrorism, was also stressed as a key point in SCO, and the work towards the adoption of the UN Comprehensive Convention on Combating International Terrorism will be acknowledged.
This is one positive news, after quite a while. Countries getting together. It doesn’t seem hard.
