He emphasized that since then the SCO has gained global recognition and become the effective platform of multifaceted cooperation. "Some Indian media should free itself from outdated views, and embrace new patterns of regional cooperation", it said.

Modi arrived in Kazakhstan capital on Thursday to attend the SCO summit where India will be formally admitted as a full-time member of the security bloc.

"Finally, the inclusion of India and Pakistan into the SCO will examine the cohesiveness of the organisation.With the admission of more member states, problems began to be more visible", it added. "Want to thank all members for their support", he said.

Modi also applauded Kazakhstan for choosing "Future Energy" as the theme for this year's SCO Summit.
