The SCO and the conflict between India and Pakistan
WHAT CAN THE SCO DO?
The particulars of the organization are only known to the people running it but their playbook is common knowledge. They hope to engage both nations through bilateral channels. Through these channels, they hope to set up talks over the many disputes. They hope for results using a successful mechanism for dispute resolution among the primary members. This could mean the lowering of border tension especially the line of control in the disputed region of Kashmir. These disputes or border tension might lead to small-scale escalations which can get out of hand. The organization is geared towards the prevention of such cases.
The Second aspect that they tackle is the opening of bilateral dialogue and trade. This could be done by establishing confidence-building measures for both sides. Both nations on governmental levels have an opportunity to establish a peace that is built on solid foundations. The main focus of the SCO is getting these two sovereign nations to handle disputes through open dialogue rather than military responses. These efforts can be bolstered with the help of other SCO members. The major task of these measures is to make sure that an open dialogue is established.
This is done to prevent the use of misinformation or other interferences for escalating any disputes. If both nations can resolve small disputes through open dialogues then there is hope for the resolution of major issues like Kashmir.
