Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif of Pakistan will participate in the 23rd Meeting of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Heads of State (CHS) on July 4. The meeting will be hosted by India and held in a video conference format. India’s Prime Minister extended the invitation to Shehbaz Sharif as the current Chair of the SCO.
The SCO is a political and security union of countries in Eurasia, including China, India, and Russia. It was formed in 2001 by Russia, China, and former Soviet states in Central Asia. It has since expanded to include India and Pakistan, with the aim of countering Western influence in the region. Kazakhstan will take over the presidency of the SCO after the summit in July.
During the meeting, the leaders will discuss important global and regional issues and plan the future cooperation among SCO Member States. This year, Iran will also join as a new member of the organization. Pakistan values the SCO as an important platform for regional security, prosperity, and engagement with the region.
China’s President Xi Jinping will also attend the summit and deliver a speech via video link on July 4.
