EAM Sushma Swaraj attends reception hosted by Russian PM Medvedev

PM said Pakistan supported and would complement the efforts of SCO-RATS in the fight against terror

Prime Ministers' Meeting, in Zhengzhou, China earlier this year.

Sushma Swaraj has attended a joint dinner hosted by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in honour of the participants of the meeting of council of heads of govenment of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) member states in Sochi.

Medvedev said the accession of India and Pakistan to the SCO in June "means that the organization is rising and promoting practical cooperation in all areas, from economy to security". The retreat would be followed by a plenary session of the CHG, where Abbasi would deliver a speech.

"The objective of this format should be to support Afghanistan's efforts for a peaceful political settlement through dialogue and combatting security and terrorism threats to Afghanistan and the region" he said.




The SCO Summit is also being attended by Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

"We also look forward to working with member states on SCO's development strategy and important initiatives such as the China-led Silk Road Economic Belt and other similar integration platforms", he stated.

Afghanistan's Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has called on the member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) to use their leverage in bringing Afghan militant groups to the negotiations table.

The SCO was founded in 2001, built on the foundations of a former organization - the Shanghai Five - and now includes China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikstan and Uzbekistan. But there are still no plans to have a bilateral meeting with Pakistani leaders.
