New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will represent India at the upcoming summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in the Russian city of Sochi.

The SCO summit will be held on November 30 and December 1 and it is likely to discuss the regional security scenario besides several other issues.
