Chinese President Xi Jinping met here Friday with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling for closer cooperation between the two countries.

PM Modi spoke on the need for enhancing connectivity in the region, adding it was key to boosting trade and investment.

Furthermore, the pressure from non-traditional security threats involving India and Pakistan will increase the difficulty in combating terrorism by the SCO. "We have developed a solid legal framework, worked out a robust institutional base, and strengthened the regional and global value", said the president of Kazakhstan.

"After 12 years of observation, will get membership of SCO".

The ministry will actively promote cooperation between small and medium-sized enterprises and local governments from SCO member countries.

"Russia believes there are now all prerequisites to approve [Iran's] membership bid", Ushakov said on Friday, adding Tehran may become an SCO member during the upcoming summits.

At the onset of the meeting, Nursultan Nazarbayev gave a special welcome to Shavkat Mirziyoyev who participated in the SCO top-level meeting for the first time since being elected the President of Uzbekistan.

The SCO summit is being held in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also addressed the Summit, congratulating India on joining the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Chinese President Xi Jinping today told Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he watched Aamir Khan- starrer sports drama Bollywood film Dangal and liked it.

India's membership was strongly pushed by Russian Federation while Pakistan's entry into the grouping was backed by China.

"We spoke about India-China relations and how to further improve ties", Modi tweeted after his meeting with Xi. "In fact, if handled well, (it) can even become opportunity", he said, indicating India's softening stand and efforts to bring down the temperature in its relationship with China.

Hailing the long-lasting friendship between the two countries with ancient civilizations, Modi said a sound India-China relationship will help stabilize the volatile worldwide situation. "For this, success and approval of the connectivity initiatives and proposals, sovereignty and territorial integrity should be respected, and inclusivity and sustainability is essential", said Modi, as UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres looked on.
