Updated : June 13, 2019 10:18 PM IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday arrived in Kyrgyzstan on a two-day visit for the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit.

India will hold bilateral meetings with Russia and China on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit at Bishkek. New Delhi would also hold a meeting with host nation Kyrgyzstan on June 14.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will also be attending the summit. This will be the first time two leaders will come face to face after months of tensions between the two countries, which began with February 14 Pulwama attack on a CRPF convoy in which at least 40 jawans were killed.

Founded in 2001, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan are the founding members of the organisation. In 2017, India and Pakistan became full members of the SCO.

CNBC-TV18's Parikshit Luthra is in conversation with Kanwal Sibal, former foreign secretary; Pinak Chakravarty, the former diplomat and Rajiv Sikri, former secretary, MEA, to put the Prime Minister's meetings and his priorities at the SCO Summit in perspective.
