Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in China's Qingdao to attend the two-day long 18th Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit meeting.
Modi will also hold a bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the summit, where they will take stock of the implementation of decisions taken at the informal summit just over a month ago in Wuhan.

In his address at the SCO summit, the PM is likely to articulate India's position on dealing with major challenges facing the world including ways to tackle terrorism, and boosting trade and investment in the region.

The summit in the eastern Chinese port city is taking place under the shadow of Washington's pull out from the Iran nuclear deal, its sanctions regime against Russia, and frictions with China over the trade tariffs.

This will be India's first participation in the summit as a full-time member of the organisation.

India, along with Pakistan, became the full-time member during Astana summit in June 2017.
