India will be represented by Jaishankar at the SCO meeting of heads of government

India’s External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, will attend a virtual meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation’s Council of Heads of Government (CHG) on Tuesday.

An annual meeting of the CHG is held to discuss the bloc’s trade and economic agenda and to approve its budget.

MEA announced that the meeting would be attended by SCO member states, observer states, the SCO secretary general, and the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure (RATS) executive director. Deliberations are expected to be attended by Turkmenistan and other guests.

“India remains actively engaged in various SCO activities and dialogue mechanisms in the region, as well as other multilateral cooperation within the SCO framework,” the MEA said. As a result of a summit in Shanghai in 2001, the SCO was founded by the presidents of Russia, China, the Kyrgyz Republic, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. In 2017, India and Pakistan became permanent members of the organization.
