Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) leaders taking part in a summit in China's Qingdao have singed the Qingdao Declaration. The signing ceremony involved the leaders of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan. The leaders adopted a total of 17 documents at the summit, which particularly include documents endorsing the 2018-2022 Action Plan to implement the Treaty for Long-term Good-Neighborly Relations, Friendship and Cooperation between the SCO states and the 2019-2020 Program for Cooperation in countering terrorism, separatism and extremism. The leaders also signed a decision to approve the 2018-2023 Anti-Drug Strategy and an Action Plan to implement it. Besides, leaders of all the SCO countries also signed an information statement.

  6. TOPIC IN NEWS How will India benefit from the membership of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation? Do you think SCO's objectives are in consonance with India's foreign policy aspirations? "I look forward to deepening India's association with the SCO which will help us in economic, connectivity and counter-terrorism cooperation, among other things," Modi said in his pre-departure statement. Modi said he looked forward to further progress in ties with SCO nations for "mutual betterment and growth of our countries and our people" O SCO came into existence in 1996. Since its establishment, the SCO has concluded several wide-ranging agreements on trade and investment security, energy connectivity, and culture. It was created at China's behest with Russian support. In Central Asia, the significance of the SCO cannot be underestimated because of the presence of large territorial and economic powers like Russia and China, as well as the geopolitical space that the grouping occupies O The geographical and strategic space which the SCO entails is of great importance for India. India's security, strategic, geopolitical, and economic interests are deeply intertwined with developments in the region KAMAN SHARMA

  7. TOPIC IN NEWS 1. Larger Role in Central Asia India's relations with the countries in Central Asia have failed to realize the enormous potential. By becoming a full member, it will help India achieve the aim of regional integration and higher connectivity with the other member nations. 2. Energy Security India is likely to get greater access to major oil and gas projects in Central Asia as most of the SCO countries have huge reserves of oil and natural gas. India has already prioritized the construction of International North- South transport corridor which would be a multi-mode network of ship, rail and road route connecting India, Russia, Europe and Central Asia 3. Fight Against Terrorism India is expecting security related cooperation with the SCO through its Regional Anti-Terrorism Structure (RATS), which deals with issues of security and defense. 4. Trade Opportunities Inclusion of India in the SCO is likely to open new trade opportunities along with cooperation in various other aspects like tourism, environmental protection, economy and research. With the inclusion of India and Pakistan, the SCO will represent 40% of the world population and 20% of World's GDP. This fact is evident that SCO members contribute massively to the world population and economy and would open a world of opportunities for India. AMAN SHARMA

  8. TOPIC IN NEWS O India today is the fastest expanding global economy, with annual GDP growth of 7.5 percent. It represents the third largest economy ($8 trillion) in PPP terms and seventh largest ($2.3 trillion) in nominal dollar terms. It also inspires confidence on other indicators, such as FDI, inward remittances, savings rate, and pace of economic reforms. India has demonstrated its keen interest in strengthening multi-faceted relations with Central Asia through Modi's historic visit to the five Central Asian republics in July 2015. Several agreements were signed and new initiatives launched. The TAPI gas pipeline represents a shining example of a mutually beneficial project. In the future, India's development experience, particularly in promoting agriculture, small and medium enterprises,pharmaceuticals, and information technology, can be of immense benefit to Central Asian countries Apart from it, India's membership in the China-dominated grouping is seen as a major milestone as it is expected to increase the group's heft in regional geo-politics and trade negotiations besides giving it a pan Asian hue.

  9. TOPIC IN NEWS SCO's objectives are in consonance with India's foreign policy aspirations Terrorism and radicalism are the most formidable challenges confronting the region and international community today O To be sure, multiple conflicting interests would intersect at the ScO forum, ranging from regional and global issues to combating terrorism. India's positions may sometimes be at odds with those of other countries which have been going along with the Chinese viewpoints. No change is expected in Beijing's stance on preventing Masood Azhar's listing in the UN sanctions list. In fact, the 'Shanghai spirit' or its consensus decision based-making approach could further complicate India's NSG membership case. Even Russia has deviated from its traditional understanding with India on Afghanistan-opting for a solution through closer alignment with Pakistan. Of course, Beijing has been hedging its own bets in Afghanistan by formulating a sub-regional security grouping consisting of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajikistan. O India has chosen to stay out of BRI for sovereignty reasons. But China is not alone; Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan had long crossed India's sovereignty red lines when they signed the Quadrilateral Traffic in Transit Agreement (QTTA) with Pakistan in 1995 to use the Karakoram Highway (KKH) passing through Gilgit-Baltistan as a transit corridor.
