19th SCO Summit all set to begin in Bishkek from today

PM Modi's Aircraft Won't Fly Over Pak For Regional Meet SCO In Bishkek

Earlier on Friday, Imran Khan had written to PM Modi offering dialogue to reconcilable problems including the Kashmir issue.

The RIC trilateral talks between Putin, Modi and China's President Xi Jinping usually focus on the global economy and its financial system, Vasily Kashin, a senior research fellow at Russia's Higher School of Economics, told RT.

On his meeting with the Russian President, the Prime Minister said, he had a wonderful meeting with Mr Vladimir Putin. This will be the second CHS meeting after India became a member of SCO.

In a big surprise meant to be a curt veiled message to Pakistan, the special Air India flight with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on board will now avoid Pakistani airspace en route to Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan.

Last month, Pakistan opened its airspace so that then-Indian external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj could travel to Bishkek to attend the SCO Foreign Ministers' meet.

According to sources, Khan and Modi did not exchange pleasantries during the dinner hosted on the sidelines of the two-day summit.

Furthermore, both leaders also agreed to a "joint ministerial commission and bilateral political consultations soon".

Khan said the SCO summit provided Pakistan with a "fresh outlet" to develop its relationship with other countries, including India.

"India is also friendly with the United States, and Pakistan is also friendly with the US".

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Special Assistant to PM on Youth Affairs Mohammad Usman Dar are accompanying the premier on this trip. The leaders of the SCO, Observer States and worldwide organizations will also attend the summit.

The Prime Minister will address the plenary session of the SCO Summit tomorrow, where he will present his vision for the regional cooperation and development through the SCO forum.

He was received by his Kyrgyz counterpart Mukhammedkalyi Abylgaziev and Kyrgyz Minister for Health Kosmosbek Sarievich Cholponbaev.

All the leaders were seen interacting with each other at the events except Indian and Pakistan.

It is expected that a number of decisions will be approved by the leaders attending the meeting, besides signing of agreements to intensify cooperation in diverse fields.

In July 2015 in Ufa, Russia, the SCO chose to admit India and Pakistan as full members and both the countries officially joined SCO as full members during the Astana Summit in 2017.
