Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday met Chinese President soon after his arrival in the port city of Qingdao, in China, where the two leaders are to take stock of the progress in implementing the decisions they had taken at their informal summit in Wuhan.  

India and China also signed agreements in the presence of PM Narendra Modi and President of China

The meeting took place on the sidelines of the annual (SCO) Summit, which will explore concrete ways to bolster cooperation in the fight against terrorism, extremism, and radicalisation, besides deliberating on pressing global issues.

Modi and Xi are expected to explore ways to deepen ties in areas of trade and investment, besides reviewing the overall India-China bilateral cooperation. 

The meeting is taking place weeks after the two leaders held an informal summit in the central Chinese city of Wuhan during which they exchanged views on solidifying the relationship between the two Asian powers.

Modi and Xi are likely to take stock of progress in the implementation of the decisions they had taken at the Wuhan informal summit, official sources said.

Modi is expected to hold nearly half a dozen bilateral meetings with leaders of other SCO countries.

It is for the first time that the Indian prime minister will be attending the after India, along with Pakistan, became a full-fledged member of the grouping, which has been increasingly seen as a counter to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
