The organisation is now a full-fledged international legal subject, and has grown into a powerful tool to promote Asian peace, stability and all-round partnership, so India's interest in the Shanghai Six has every justification, said the diplomat.
All the more evident is Russo-Indo-Chinese eagerness to buttress many-sided tripartite partnership. Just how promising this partnership could become was shown in New York City, September 24, 2003, as the three Ministers of Foreign Affairs gathered for their second routine conference, Mr. Kadakin went on.
As he came over to the three countries' shared interests, the ambassador highlighted combat against international terrorism, separatism and religious extremism, joint efforts to develop transport and fuel-and-power industry, and research, technological and cultural partnership.
The three countries' strategic priorities are mutually compatible to provide a sound basis for efficient teamwork on the international scene-and such team efforts reflect the emergence of true multi-polar arrangements in the contemporary world, emphasised the ambassador.
