- Tashkent: As the final process for India's accession as a full member of the SCO began, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said India's ties with the bloc will help protect the region from threats of radicalisation and violence asserting that it would adopt "zero tolerance" to terrorism. In his address at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit, Modi said India would significantly benefit from the grouping's strengths in energy and natural resources and in turn India's strong economy and vast market could drive economic growth in the SCO region.
