The entry of India and Pakistan into Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) is likely to contribute to the stability and security of the region, thus boosting economic growth and speeding up regional economic integration, according to a report. 
India and Pakistan are slated to be admitted into the six-member SCO during its next summit to be held at Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, in June this year.
The SCO, which is headquartered in Beijing, focuses mostly on security related issues like counter-terrorism cooperation in Central Asia. 
Delving on the role of SCO in Indo-Pak hostility, the Global Times report says, “The hostility between India and Pakistan is unlikely to be dispelled in a short time, but the SCO is likely to provide a fresh platform for the two nations to gradually resolve disputes.” Significantly, the report says that as per the framework of the SCO, a third party could step in to prevent an outbreak of conflict between the two countries.
