Pakistani NSA Moeed Yusuf also attended this meeting. He had earlier said that there is no possibility of a bilateral meeting with his Indian counterpart on the sidelines of the SCO meeting.

However, in recent months, the rhetoric against India by the Pakistani political and military leadership has softened somewhat.
Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa said in April that stable connectivity between India and Pakistan is the key to unlocking the potential of South and Central Asia.
In February, India and Pakistan Military Commanders agreed to strictly adhere to the 2003 ceasefire agreement.
