Along with India, Pakistan has also joined the SCO as a full member state.
China's State media today reported that Xi only held talks with PM Modi, as well as with leaders of Tajikistan and Turkmenistan and the King of Spain who is in Astana for a world expo held alongside the SCO summit.
He assured that China will contribute with an additional 10 million yuan ($1.47 million USD) to the SCO Secretariat in order to facilitate its work.

"We look forward to working with member countries for progress, prosperity and connectivity in the region", said Pankaj Patel, President, Ficci.
President Jinping congratulated India on its expected official membership of the SCO and stated China's willingness to strengthen cooperation with India under the SCO framework and jointly make positive contribution to its sound and steady development. "We support connectivity with the SCO countries", he said, speaking in Hindi and added, "Connectivity should create cooperation and trust among our future generations".

"If Russia uses its strength and convince China, then the positive result will be seen in terms of terrorism", Sinha asserted.
