Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has reinforced his country's commitment to contributing substantially to the advancement of the goals of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
Khan made the remarks in his comprehensive statement at 19th Meeting of the Council of Heads of SCO Member States held on 13-14 June in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
The Prime Minister's engagement with world leaders including President Xi Jinping and President Vladimir Putin lent further momentum to Pakistan's all-weather strategic cooperative partnership with China and to the growth of Pakistan's multi-dimensional ties with the Russian Federation, Foreign Office in a press statement on Saturday said.
Leaders of the SCO member states and observer states discussed, during the two-day summit, the global security situation, multilateral economic cooperation and people-to-people exchanges as well as topical issues of international and regional importance.
The SCO, which was established on 26 April 1996, is an international political, economic and security bloc that consists of eight member states (China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan), and four observers (Afghanistan, Belarus, Iran and Mongolia).
