Meanwhile, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar on Monday reiterated that there is no meeting scheduled between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan at the upcoming SCO Summit. He said, various subjects pertaining to India-Russia relations were discussed during the meeting.

Responding to a question on whether Pakistan is seeking global mediation in improving bilateral ties with India, Khan said that Islamabad is looking for mediation as it believes that "progress comes with peace and tensions with neighbours detract from resources that can be spent on human beings". "Pakistan is looking for any kind of mediation because it believes progress comes with peace". As an attempt to enhance productivity, Modi also asked the cabinet ministers to share important files with the state ministers.

According to sources, Khan and Modi did not exchange pleasantries during the dinner hosted on the sidelines of the two-day summit.

Cooperation between the two countries, said the Chinese leader, cannot only boost their respective development, but also will contribute to peace, stability and prosperity in Asia and the wider world.

All the leaders were seen interacting with each other at the events except Indian and Pakistan.

The responsibility for the attack was claimed by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).

Modi and his party leaders all declared themselves, "Chowkidars" (Guards) of an India threatened by Pakistan, on their twitter handles.

Xi noted that China and India are the world's only two emerging economies that boast a population of more than 1 billion respectively, and are both at a crucial stage of rapid development. Though the Indian government made leaks to its media claiming killing 350 militants in Ballot, KP, but under the scrutiny of Indian media and opposition, it later retracted its earlier claims and admitted that no casualties took place during its airstrike. Islamabad also captured one of the Indian pilots but later released him to defuse the impending crisis.

Modi Thursday raised the issue of cross-border terrorism emanating from Pakistan during his talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping here and said India expects "concrete action" by Islamabad to create an atmosphere free of terror for the resumption of dialogue.
