Later, Ms. Swaraj also called on Mr. Xi, as part of a delegation of Foreign Ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

He pointed out that “as newly emerging markets as well as developing countries with big populations... we believed the two countries (India and China) will continue to uphold the globalisation so that it is more inclusive”.
