Pakistan as SCO member state ....... future aspects


     Pakistan in 1950 broke its relations with Republic of China or Taiwan and was among the first to recognize People Republic of China. Over a period of time, China has developed itself as one of the mightiest powers on world theater. Silent and stable China has played its role in most convincing manner. Pakistan is having long history of mutual understanding, friendship and respect with China. Present  visit of China's Premier to Pakistan and signing of billions of dollars economical deals will further strengthen the ties.
   
    Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) formed in 2001 between five Asian countries has now developed as   one of the most powerful organizations. However, Pakistan is at Observer role same as India, Mongolia and Iran but there are chances that China would help Pakistan to become Member State.
   SCO as strong International Organization 
Importance of SCO can be analyze from the opening statement of of President of Kazakhstan in 2005, in which he stated “The leaders of the states sitting at this negotiation table are representatives of half of humanity.” International recognition of SCO can be analyze from this fact that ; SCO is having observer states in General Assembly, European Union, ASEAN, Common wealth of independent states and OIC.
Military Activities :  Peace Mission Military Exercises in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009 were successfully conducted between the member states of SCO. Although organization has never shown any hostile intentions against any country, these war games are sign of mutual understanding between member  states.
Economical Cooperation:  China announced a loan of 10 billion US $ in 2007 for member states to regulate the economical  activities in the region. May be this organization will developed as independent international banking system (however its to early to comment on this, but its a possibility). Member states China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan (central Asian Region) are mineral resources rich nations of the world.
