India, Pak Set to Join SCO

India and Pakistan are about to become members of the Shanghai Cooperative Organization:

I think one of the reasons this is happening is because China is now trying to upend the Russians to make them a junior partner, and therefore India and Pak are being brought in to mitigate the effects of that. Certainly, China's new "One Belt, One Road" initiative heavily affects Central Asia, and China did not bother to consult with anyone before embarking on this unilaterally.
