SCO Summit 2022: SCO ie Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit is being organized in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. In which Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also be involved. PM Modi will leave for Samarkand this afternoon to participate in this summit. They are expected to reach Samarkand at around 6 pm. After which PM Modi will attend the SCO meeting on 16 September. This time the SCO Summit is special in many ways. The PM of Pakistan and the President of China are also attending this summit.
Will you meet Pakistani PM?
Relations between India and Pakistan have not always been good. India stopped talks with Pakistan after the Pulwama terror attack. Since the Pathankot attack in 2016, there has been no bilateral dialogue between the two countries at any forum in the world. In 2019, there was a small meeting between PM Modi and the then Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Which was named the courtesy meeting. However, it was made clear from India’s side that there would be no talks with Pakistan in the summit.
Now after three years i.e. in 2022, the Prime Ministers of both the countries will once again be on this platform. However, this time also the chances of talks are less visible. PM Modi will face Pakistan’s PM Shahbaz Sharif for the first time. If talks take place between the two leaders, it will be very important for Indo-Pak trade. Pakistan would like it to talk to India at any cost, because there the floods have caused havoc and the already crumbling economy has been completely destroyed. However, PM Modi can once again raise the issue of terrorism in front of the Pak PM.
Meeting with Jinping amid disengagement at LAC
In this SCO summit being held in Samarkand, PM Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping are going to meet after about 34 months. This meeting is considered very important regarding the India-China border dispute. The last meeting between the two took place in 2019 during the BRICS conference. This will be the first meeting of the two after the border dispute. Just before this summit, some leniency was shown from the side of China and the army was withdrawn from all the disputed areas on the LAC. The armies of India and China have also removed their bunkers from the disputed areas. After which the work of disengaging is almost complete.
After the disengagement between the armies of India and China, there is an improvement in relations. In such a situation, it is believed that apart from the border dispute, there can be talks between PM Modi and Jinping on many other issues. Due to bad relations, trade between the two countries was also affected a lot. Now the conversation can go ahead regarding this as well.
Jinping on foreign trip for the first time after Corona
Chinese President Xi Jinping is on his first foreign trip after the Corona epidemic. He is reaching Uzbekistan to participate in the SCO summit. Let us tell you that there have been many serious allegations against China regarding the corona epidemic. Because the first case of corona came out from China itself, China has always been under the scanner. However, Jinping and the Chinese government have always been blaming America for this.
Putin on the international stage after the war with Ukraine
Russian President Vladimir Putin will be present on an international forum for the first time since the war with Ukraine. Many big countries of the world are against Russia for the attack on Ukraine. However, India never spoke openly against Russia on this matter. India said that the issue should be resolved through dialogue. Due to this, America had also expressed displeasure. In such a situation, the meeting between PM Modi and Putin is considered very important. Along with this, the world is also eyeing the meeting between Jinping and Putin.
