TASHKENT, June 23. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Tashkent, where a two-day annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) timed to its 15th anniversary gets underway on Thursday.
According to Putin’s aide Yuri Ushakov, on Thursday the Russian president will have a brief bilateral meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping.
The two leaders will also take part in trilateral talks with Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj. It will be the third meeting in this format. The two previous meetings of the three leaders were held in 2014 and 2015, also on the sidelines of the summit meetings of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Dushanbe and Ufa, respectively.
On Friday Putin will also hold meetings with Uzbekistan’s President Islam Karimov and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
