"Will have to make coordinated efforts to counter the menace of terrorism".

China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, India and Pakistan are members of the Shanghai organization.

This was stated by Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif while delivering his speech here at SCO Summit in Astana on Friday.

Hua Chunying, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, said the murders were in no way connected to the $50 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which Baloch nationalists oppose.

Combatting global terrorism is another key issue on the agenda for this year's summit.

"Both leaders greeted each other at the Leaders' Lounge at the Astana Opera on Thursday evening before the SCO concert", the source said. "I have full confidence that the India-SCO cooperation will give a new direction and strength to the fight against terrorism", Modi said.

President of Afghanistan Muhammad Ashraf Ghani, President of Belarus Alexandar Lukashenko, President of Mangolia Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi were also present during the summit.

Xi also said that China and India should increase trade and investment cooperation to ensure that the two countries were able to enjoy more "early stage profits" from large scale projects in infrastructure and industry.

Putin also said that the SCO members should work on combining economic cooperation efforts and national strategies to bring together the capacities of the existing integration projects in Eurasia, including the Eurasian Economic Union and China's One Belt, One Road initiative.

Prime Minister Modi had a cordial and positive meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping today.

China is vocal about its stand to block India's admission into the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

Modi and Sharif last met on the sidelines of the Paris climate summit in December 2015 before Modi surprised the world with an impromptu visit to Pakistan the same month.

Yesterday, India and Pakistan formally joined the SCO, a security bloc spearheaded by China and Russian Federation.
