Iranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks to reporters in Tehran
"The SCO has a rich agenda for cooperation, ranging from fighting terrorism, separatism and extremism to promoting cooperation in connectivity, commerce, customs, law, health and agriculture; protecting the environment and mitigating disaster risk, and fostering people-to-people relations", Prime Minister Modi said.
In tomorrow's meeting, Modi and Xi are likely to take stock of progress in implementation of decisions they had taken at the informal summit.
In his address at the two-day SCO summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is arriving here tomorrow, is likely to articulate India's position on dealing with major challenges facing the world including ways to tackle terrorism, and boosting trade and investment in the region.
He also said he would be holding multiple meetings with the heads of various SCO member states on the sidelines of the summit.
The India-China bilateral trade reached $84.44 billion past year, according to data of the Chinese General Administration of Customs in March.
PM Modi is expected to hold about six bilateral meetings with leaders of other SCO countries. "Our talks will add further vigour to the India-China friendship", Modi said in a tweet.
The two leaders also discussed China importing "high quality pharmaceutical products" from India.
"One of the important outcomes of today's meeting was that the Chinese side conveyed that they accepted (Modi's) invitation to President Xi Jinping to have a similar informal summit in India in 2019", he said.

The two leaders reviewed the full range of bilateral ties, especially ways to boost economic and cultural links between the two countries. "And in that context Xi told Modi that China is looking at enhancing agricultural exports from India including non-Basmati rice and sugar", Gokhale said.
Troops of India and China were locked in the 73-day standoff in Doklam since June 16 previous year after the Indian side stopped the construction of a road by the Chinese Army in the disputed area.
This was the 14th meeting between the two leaders over the past four years.
At the end of the two-day summit, the leaders are expected to sign a Qingdao Declaration.
The two sides also held discussions on other bilateral issues affecting the two countries.
"I am excited to lead the Indian delegation for our first-ever meeting of the Council as a full member", Modi said in a Facebook post.
The security bloc will also likely mull over whether to allow Iran to ascend from its position as an SCO observer to become a full member state - a development it has sought since 2008 but has been unable to achieve while subject to United Nations sanctions. China is gambling its diplomatic credibility on the chance it can facilitate better relations between India and Pakistan at the SCO summit.
