Relevant for: International Relations | Topic: India – Pakistan
The eight-nation Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) on Wednesday offered to smoothen a bilateral dialogue between India and Pakistan so that the two countries can resolve their differences, following last month’s terror attack in Kashmir.
At his first press conference after taking over as the SCO Secretary-General, Vladimir Norov offered “mediation,” to support direct talks between both countries. He said the SCO memberstates were ready “to offer mediation… as there is an intention [by India and Pakistan] to resolve the differences in a bilateral format”.
