TASHKENT: Accession of India and Pakistan does not envisage reforming the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) but will require adjusting cooperation mechanisms, Russian presidential envoy for SCO Bakhtiyer Khakimov told to media on Tuesday.

"There will be no SCO reform. However, the process of expanding (the organization) continues, and the prospects of accession of new members will require adjustment of cooperation mechanisms," Khakimov said.

He noted that "new members should be adapted, should be included in these structures." "New details will emerge in the framework of the SCO secretariat and at sessions of the Council of national coordinators," the diplomat added.

Khakimov expressed confidence that "SCO’s role will grow significantly" after India and Pakistan join the organization. "Prospects are very promising," he concluded.

Uzbekistan chairs the organization, and the SCO summit will be held in Tashkent on June 23-24.
