PM Narendra Modi heads to Kyrgyzstan for SCO summit, to also hold five bilateral meetings

Bishkek: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday left for Kyrgyzstan for a two-day visit during which he will be participating in the 19th Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit and hold five formal bilateral meetings.

He will be meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Afghanistan's President Ashraf Ghani, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani and Kyrgyzstan's President Sooronbay Jeenbekov.

The Prime Minister will land in the central Asian country post 2.30 PM IST and will have bilateral with leaders of China, Russia and Afghanistan on Thursday which will be followed by an informal dinner with President Sooronbay Jeenbekov of Kyrgyzstan.

On the first day, he will also be meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin. This will be his first meeting with the Chinese President this year and first meet since the Masood Azhar was listed as an international terrorist by the United Nations. The meeting comes ahead of Chinese President's visit to India for the second informal summit later this year.

This is the first multilateral summit that PM will be attending after the elections. In a pre-departure statement ahead of SCO summit, PM said, "We attach special importance to SCO in promoting multilateral, political, security, economic and people-to-people interaction in the region."

PM Modi will not be using the Pakistani airspace for his Kyrgyzstan visit and will be using airspace of Oman, Iran and Central Asian countries to reach the country. Air India has confirmed that the route does not cross Pakistani airspace in any way. India had explored two options for the route to be taken by PM's Aircraft to Bishkek.

The organization represents 42% of the world’s population, 22% of its land area and 20% of its GDP and New Delhi sees it as a platform to engage with Central Asian countries.
