Bishkek, Dec 5 (IANS) India and Pakistan Wednesday expressed their willingness to become members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

Currently, both nations attend SCO meetings as observers.

Pakistan's Information and Broadcasting Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira said at the meeting that his country also wants to join the SCO as a full-fledged member.
