FM Bilawal Attends SCO Summit In India
Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was greeted by Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar as he arrived at the meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Foreign Ministers in Goa on Friday.

The CFM meeting was slated to start in the morning, and by noon, the "decision document" would be signed. A working lunch would then follow.

Bilawal Bhutto, who is leading the Pakistani delegation, arrived in Goa on Thursday to take part in the two-day SCO CFM conference.

Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zehra Baloch stated that India has given Pakistan no cause to object to Bilawal's visit to the SCO meeting in Goa.

While talking to a private news channel, she said, "They did not give us an opportunity to voice our complaints. So far, everything is going well."

On his first trip to India, Bilawal arrived in the city the day before, hoping for a "successful" meeting of the SCO foreign ministers.

After nearly 12 years, Bilawal's arrival marked the return of Pakistan's foreign minister to the neighboring country.

The foreign minister stated in a statement to the media shortly after arriving in Goa: "I am pleased to have arrived here to attend the SCO conference." "I sincerely hope the SCO CFM will be a success," he added.

A number of counterparts from various countries are expected to interact with Bilawal and his delegation during the visit.

In a video message that he released on Twitter, the foreign minister said that he will meet with Sergey Lavrov and Uzbekistan Foreign Minister Bakhtiyor Saidov.

After the sessions, Bilawal Bhutto is scheduled to attend a dinner where the foreign ministers of every country will be in attendance. He will then give interviews to members of the media.
