Other extremist organizations may be encouraged to seize power through violence.
Noting that most of the nations have become victims of terrorism, the Prime Minister said, we need to ensure that the soil of Afghanistan is not used to spread terrorism in any country. SCO member states should develop strict norms on this issue.
