Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday met Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on the sidelines of the SCO Summit here and the two leaders reviewed the full range of bilateral ties, especially ways to boost economic and cultural links.

“Wonderful to meet Mr Shavkat Mirziyoyev, President of Uzbekistan. Ties between our nations have their roots in history,” Mr. Modi said in a tweet. “We reviewed the full range of the India-Uzbekistan friendship, especially ways to boost economic and cultural cooperation,” he said.

It is for the first time that an Indian Prime Minister is attending the summit after India along with Pakistan became a full-fledged member of the group jointly dominated by China and Russia, which has been increasingly seen as a counter to NATO.
