ISLAMABAD: The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Goa, India, will be attended by Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari tomorrow.

After over 12 years, FM Bhutto will be the first Pakistani foreign minister to visit India.

The SCO Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) will be held in the Indian city of Goa on May 4 and 5, and the Pakistani delegation will be led by Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, according to MOFA spokesperson Mumtaz Zahrah Baloch.

During his visit to India, the foreign minister of Pakistan will also attend meetings outside of the SCO moot.

Baloch stated in a weekly press conference that “our participation in the meeting reflects Pakistan’s commitment to the SCO charter and processes and the importance that Pakistan accords to the region in its foreign policy priorities.”

She recalled that the previous year in July, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the foreign minister, had also gone to the Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in Tashkent.

The current SCO CFM chairperson, Dr. S. Jaishankar, the Indian Minister of External Affairs, invited the foreign minister to the meeting.

In a separate statement, Foreign Minister Bhutto said he would be present at the upcoming SCO meeting in India.

At a press conference, he informed the media, “I will go there as a representative of Pakistan. It will be a gathering of foreign ministers.”
