SCO Conference: The lack of peace, security, and trust is a major challenge for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) as these have strengthened themselves, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he led the Indian delegation to the nearly annual conference on Friday. He added that recent developments in Afghanistan highlighted the challenge.
Foreign Minister S Jaishankar earlier in the day met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and discussed the border with him next to the summit. While Prime Minister Modi joined the meeting via video link, Jaishankar is in the Tajik capital of Dushanbe.

A Times of India report earlier this month stated that Prime Minister Modi is unlikely to name a Taliban in his statement – in line with India’s statements on Afghanistan at the UNSC and at the UN Human Rights Council. India has decided to wait and see if the Taliban really walk the talk. Afghanistan is a facilitator in the SCO.
The SCO and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) comprising Russia and the Central Asia States will hold a joint conference in Afghanistan.
