India has invited Pakistan’s Chief Justice and Foreign Minister to attend SCO meetings

India has invited Pakistan’s Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to attend meetings of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which also includes Russia and China. This information has been given in a media report. The Express Tribune reported that India currently holds the presidency of the SCO, which includes Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Iran and Central Asian states.

As the chair of the SCO, New Delhi is set to host a number of events, including a conference of chief justices of member states, a meeting of foreign ministers and a summit in 2023. The chief justices of the SCO are scheduled to meet in March while the foreign ministers will meet in May. Official sources confirmed to The Express Tribune on Monday that India has sent invitations to Pakistan for the meeting of chief justices and foreign ministers.

Pakistan and India were accepted as full members of the influential organization a few years ago after pledging not to influence the work of the SCO due to their bilateral disputes. The Express Tribune reported that the SCO foreign ministers’ meeting is scheduled to be held in Goa.

In the new information that has come out recently, it has been claimed that in the beginning of 2021, relations between India and Pakistan can improve. It was said at that time that the Prime Minister of India could meet with his Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan during a conference.
