Opportunities and challenges of SCO expansion (CGTN)

Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed the importance of deepening mutual trust and regional cooperation especially in tackling extremism, during a speech at the 17th annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Astana. China also expressed hope that Pakistan and India will improve their relations after their ascension to the SCO.

Can the SCO manage existing conflicts between member states? What benefits could Pakistan and India achieve from joining the SCO? Wang Yiwei, Director of the Institute of International Affairs at Renmin University of China, Madhav Nalapat, UNESCO Peace Chair and Director of the Geopolitics and International Relations Department at Manipal University, and Maxim Mikhalev, Director of East Asia and SCO Countries Program of the Center for Crisis Society Studies, share their opinions.
