President Mamnoon congratulated President Xi Jinping on his re-election as President of People's Republic of China and General Secretary of Communist Party of China (CPC). Chinese strategic expert Long Xingchun, senior research fellow at the Charhar Institute, told India Today that Pakistan could make some compromises on terror, but that members should not make the issue country-specific, referring to India. He said that Pakistan supported the Chinese chairmanship of SCO and appreciated the various initiatives proposed by China in the organisation during the last one year.

It is for the first time the Indian Prime Minister will be attending the SCO summit after India along with Pakistan became a full-fledged members of the grouping, jointly dominated by China and Russian Federation, which has been increasingly seen as a counter to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Trade, investment and development cooperation issues will also feature prominently at the SCO, Murphy said, given the climate of "rising anti-globalization and strains on global multilateral economic institutions", stoked by Trump's nationalist "America First" policy. The leaders are also supposed to focus on the issues of global trade and counterterrorism.

As Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said last week, "The Qingdao Summit will lay out new plans to enhance the synergy of development strategies of member states, especially promoting the construction of the Belt and Road to lift regional economic cooperation".

The two leaders also deliberated on initiating a joint project in Afghanistan which will be in the sphere of capacity building.

During his meeting with Xi, the Prime Minister highlighted the negative balance of trade arrangement for India and expressed the hope that China would buy a range of products like rice, sugar and pharmaceuticals from India.

The two leaders also spoke about ensuring greater people-to-people contact, with Xi talking about the popularity of Indian films like Dangal, Bahubaali and Hindi Medium in China.
