A top Pakistani diplomat told the visiting SCO secretary general that the country has "exceptionally strong credentials" to become a full member of the SCO which groups China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan.

Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry underlined that Pakistan's membership would bring the SCO a step closer to achieving its vision of regional economic cooperation because of its deep rooted historical and cultural links and strong economic and strategic complementarities.
