BENAULIM, India -- India's foreign minister told a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization on Friday that channels for financing terrorism "must be seized and blocked without distinction," in a thinly veiled dig at Pakistan.

More broadly, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar warned that multiple global crises have undermined trust in international institutions, while the SCO moved toward adding new "dialogue partners," including military-ruled Myanmar.
