The Prime Minister strongly condemned the recent spate of terrorist attacks in Kabul and other parts of Afghanistan, and expressed India's honest condolences on loss of hundreds of innocent lives.

Modi stressed on coordinated efforts to fight the menace of terrorism, including radicalisation, recruitment, training and financing of terrorists.

This was all the more significant given that at the SCO summit, the entry of both India and Pakistan as the newest members of the six-nation grouping was confirmed.

Those words will have pleased Putin, who says the United States has an outdated vision of a "unipolar" world dominated by Washington and wants to show Russian Federation has not been weakened by western sanctions over its role in the Ukraine crisis.

President of Afghanistan Muhammad Ashraf Ghani, President of Belarus Alexandar Lukashenko, President of Mangolia Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi were also present during the summit. Respect to sovereignty and regional integrity is necessary.

Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz Saturday said Pakistan would be soon at the center stage of massive trade activities as it gained the full membership of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

In addition to issuing a final communique and ten other documents, the two-day gathering saw a number of bilateral meetings on the sidelines which were of strategic importance. But where we have differences, how do we work through those differences, find common ground where they are possible. "We are highly concerned", Hua Chunying, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said.

News of their kiling was published just before the SCO summit on June 8-9, in which Pakistan and India were made members.

President Jinping congratulated India on its expected official membership of the SCO and stated China's willingness to strengthen cooperation with India under the SCO framework and jointly make positive contribution to its sound and steady development. It is, indeed, an honour for Pakistan to be a member of a body that has become the largest geographical block in the world and has also now become the biggest block in terms of population with the inclusion of Pakistan and India.

Avoiding direct reference to OBOR and CPEC, he said India's decision to join the International North South Transport Corridor and the Chabahar port agreement, and the decision to join the Ashgabat Agreement will bring India closer to these places.
