This year's meeting of foreign and defense ministers holds special significance since they were the first top ministerial-level meetings of the SCO since it expanded last June.
Already the SCO has become the world's largest regional platform in terms of representation, especially after the inclusion of Pakistan, with the world's 6th largest population, and India, with the 2nd largest.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a state visit to Kazakhstan from June 8 to 9. During his visit, Modi attended the 17th meeting of the Council of Heads of State of SCO and the opening ceremony of the World Expo held in Astana.
With full member status of Shahnghai Coorporation Organization (SCO), Pakistan is poised to receive infinite economic windfalls in the days ahead.
