Ahead of his visit to Uzbekistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that he is looking forward to exchanging views on topical, regional and international issues at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit.
Modi in a statement said I look forward to exchanging views on the expansion of SCO and on further deepening of multifaceted and mutually beneficial cooperation within the organisation.
“Under the Uzbek Chairship, a number of decisions for mutual cooperation are likely to be adopted in areas of trade, economy, culture and tourism,” he said.
