Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping met in Astana on Friday on the sidelines of the SCO summit, seen as an effort to fix ties hit by growing differences between the two countries over a host of issues including the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and NSG.

"I look forward to deepening India's association with the SCO, which will help strengthen cooperation in economy, connectivity, counterterrorism, etc", said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Will have to make coordinated efforts to counter the menace of terrorism", PM Modi said at the meet.

India on Friday became a full member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), ending an administrative process that began two years ago. The Prime Minister said India's SCO membership will certainly take cooperation among member states to new heights.

Indian premier Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif shook hands and exchanged greetings late Thursday at the opening of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) meeting in Astana. "We look forward to working with member countries for progress, prosperity and connectivity in the region", said Pankaj Patel, President, Ficci. The killing of the Chinese citizens vindicated the issues of terrorism raised by Modi in his speech at the SCO.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization is a political, military and economic alliance including China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Xi also stressed the need to develop the Bangladesh, China, India and Myanmar corridor, one of the six components of Beijing's One Belt, One Road project. Both the leaders discussed India-China relations and how to further improve ties.

Sources in New Delhi, however, told DH that India attended the SCO summit as an observer and hence had no say on the content of the outcome document that was drafted by the officials of the member nations.
