(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
India, Pakistan and other member-states of Shanghai Cooperation
Organisation (SCO) on Monday deliberated on boosting cooperation in
combating various regional security challenges at a meeting hosted
by New Delhi.
The three-day meeting is taking place under the framework of the
SCO's Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure (RATS).
A major focus of the discussions was to be on the situation in
Afghanistan, especially in dealing with the threat from terror
groups active in the Taliban-ruled country, sources said. Pakistan,
sources said, has sent a three-member team — an official each from
the Interior, Defence and Foreign ministries — for the meeting.
India assumed chairmanship of the Council of Regional
Anti-Terrorist Structure of SCO (RATS SCO) on October 28 last year
for a period of one year. India has shown keen interest in
deepening its security-related cooperation with the SCO and its
Regional Anti-Terrorism Structure, which specifically deals with
issues relating to security and defence.
