How SCO membership would benefit Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: Spokesperson to Foreign Office Nafees Zakria on Thursday said that Pakistan’s membership of
the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) would help strengthen its connectivity with the region.

Talking to a private news channel, he said Pakistan applied for the SCO membership in 2010, which was approved by the organization in 2015.
He said being an emerging platform, the SCO would provide Pakistan a good opportunity to play its role in addressing the challenges being faced by the region, such as drug trafficking,
human smuggling and security related matters.

The SCO, he said, would help Pakistan improve its relations with Central Asian States.
