SCO countries pledge to cooperate against terrorism, radicalism in NSA meeting

Dushanbe: During the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) meet in Dushanbe on June 23, National Security Advisors of member countries pledged cooperation in the joint fight against international terrorism, extremism, and separatism.     

 

The NSAs of the SCO countries discussed cooperation against religious radicalism and the risks of increasing transnational organized crime, including arms and drug trafficking, as per exclusive details of the meeting.

 

It was also stressed that the regional anti-terrorism structure of the SCO can play a significant role in ensuring regional security and strengthening ties between member states in combating threats and challenges of the modern world.

 

In the COVID-19 pandemic, the summit also examined member nations' collaboration in maintaining trustworthy information security, the cooperative fight against cyber-crime, and biological and food security challenges.

 

Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon addressed the meeting. Indian NSA Ajit Doval was also one participant in the meeting.

 

Pakistani NSA Moeed Yusuf also attended this meeting. He had earlier said that there is no possibility of a bilateral meeting with his Indian counterpart on the sidelines of the SCO meet.

 

Last year in September, Ajit Doval had stormed out of the SCO's virtual meeting of national security advisors after Pakistan showed a "fictitious" map violating the meeting's agenda. However, in recent months, Pakistani political and army leadership seems to have toned down rhetoric against India.

 

Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa said in April that a stable relationship between India and Pakistan is key to unlocking the potential of South and Central Asia by ensuring connectivity.

 

In February, India and Pakistan agreed to observe the 2003 ceasefire agreement.
