Shanghai Cooperation Organisation face-to-face meet agenda: Sino-India ties, Afghan future

The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) under Russia’s presidency has drawn up an expansive agenda, from a multilateral world order to counterterrorist initiatives, as the eight-member grouping prepares to hold minister-level meetings and its summit in physical format in the months ahead.

Foreign ministers and national security advisors of the SCO states plan to meet in September in Moscow, and this could enable foreign minister S Jaishankar and NSA AK Doval to travel for the first time since the Covid-19 outbreak. If they visit Moscow, it could facilitate meetings with their counterparts on the side-lines.

The SCO agenda for 2020 will be dominated by the future of Afghanistan following the US-Taliban deal, Eurasian connectivity links, counterterrorism initiatives, a multilateral world order, 75 years of the UN and its reforms, and the joint fight against Covid-19, ET has learnt.
