In diplomatic courtesy, India hosts Pak team under SCO framework

New Delhi: India hosted a Pakistani delegation that came to participate in a cyber security seminar under the framework of the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorism Structure (RATS). Charge d’Affaires at the Pakistan High Commission Aftab Hasan Khan received the delegation at the mission.

“Today at the High Commission, Cd’A Aftab Hasan Khan received Pakistan’s delegation participating in Cyber Security Seminar being held in New Delhi from 7-8 December 2021,” the High Commission tweeted on December 6.

The visit by the Pakistani delegation comes amid continued strain in ties between the two countries over Pak-sponsored terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

India has shown keen interest in deepening its security-related cooperation with the SCO and its Regional Anti-Terrorism Structure (RATS) which specifically deals with issues relating to security and defense.

The eight-nation Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has emerged as one of the largest trans-regional international organizations in recent times. India and Pakistan became its permanent members in 2017.
