Indian Representative Leaves SCO Meet after Pakistan Provocation

Thursday 17 September 2020

NEW DELHI (WION) – India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Tuesday walked out of a virtual Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) meeting, after the Pakistani representative used a map as the backdrop showing Indian territories as part of Pakistan.

Indian NSA Mr Ajit Doval raised strong objection to Pakistan using the “illegal” map and the Indian side walked out of the meeting saying such an act was a blatant violation of the SCO Charter.

Russia, as the Chair, tried very hard to persuade Pakistan not rake up Kashmir issue at the SCO. Mr Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of the National Security Council of Russian Federation, conveyed that Russia does not support what Pakistan has done. Sources said Russia hoped that Pakistan’s provocative act will not affect India’s participation in SCO and “definitely not cast any shadow on Mr Patrushev’s warm personal relationship with NSA for whom he has the highest regard.” Mr Patrushev’s said he hopes to see NSA at the forthcoming events.

Pakistan in a statement depicted another picture saying the Mr Dovals’ objections were overruled at the SCO meeting and the forum agreed to Pakistan’s position as a result Dr. Moeed Yusuf conducted the SCO meeting with Pakistan’s new political map as background for the discussions.
