In response to questions on today’s meeting of NSAs of SCO member states, MEA Spokesperson Shri Anurag Srivastava said

At the meeting of the National Security Advisers (NSAs) of member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), hosted by the Chair of the SCO (Russia), the Pakistani NSA deliberately projected a fictitious map that Pakistan has recently been propagating. This was in blatant disregard to the advisory by the host against it and in violation of the norms of the meeting. After consultation with the host, the Indian side left the meeting in protest at that juncture.

As was to be expected, Pakistan then went on to present a misleading view of this meeting.
