The SCO summit is scheduled to take place on Sunday where talks regarding terrorism and security are expected to be focused upon.

This will be India's first participation in the summit as a full-time member of the organisation. India, along with Pakistan, became full-time members during Astana Summit in Kazakhstan in June 2017.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi met General Secretary of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Rashid Alimov.

Prime Minister Modi is also scheduled to hold bilateral talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping later in the day.

He is on a two-day visit to China as part of which he will be attending the SCO summit and will hold multiple meetings with other SCO leaders.

Member-countries, including India, Pakistan, China, Kazakhstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, are expected to sign the Qingdao Declaration, after the deliberations.

The declaration is expected to contain details for creating significant mechanisms to resist terror activities around the globe.
