Modi to attend SCO meet

  • The eight-member SCO summit is scheduled for June in the Chinese city of Qingdao. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend it.

  • Officials said Ms. Sitharaman would hold meetings with Chinese leaders.

  • External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and National Security Adviser Ajit Doval are among the senior officials to visit China in recent days, as India and China attempt to reset the ties damaged by last year’s Doklam standoff and related developments.

  • The militaries are also engaged in reviving the friendly engagements they had.

  • As a major step, the two sides will resume their bilateral exercise ‘Hand-in-Hand’ this year, officials said.
