Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will participate in the 16th meeting of the Council of the Heads of Government (CHG) of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) at Sochi, Russia, from November 30 to December 1, 2017, on the invitation of the Russian Federation Prime Minister D A Medvedev.
At present, the SCO comprised of eight member states, including Pakistan, China, Russia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
The document, which plays an exemplary role for global anti-extremism cooperation, shows the region's decisive resolution in the fight against the "three evil forces", namely terrorism, extremism and separatism, Li said.
He called the SCO to grant Afghanistan permanent co-chairmanship for future Contact Group to help address the challenges that confront Afghanistan and the region.
He said Afghan government is seeking enhanced cooperation on anti-terrorism between SCO member states and Afghanistan.
He said China supports a wide and inclusive political reconciliation process led and owned by the Afghan people, and is ready to assist Afghanistan in realizing its domestic political stability and economic development.
It will also work towards ensuring safety in cooperative projects initiated with China, such as coordination in multilateral mechanism and other regional matters along with SCO, he said.
The summit beginning on Thursday is likely to discuss issues relating to the regional security scenario including situation in the Gulf and Afghanistan.
The prime minister will also hold bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the summit.
