To attend the conference of the defence ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), Chinese Defence Minister General Li Shangfu will be arriving in Delhi on April 28.
After the ongoing standoff between the forces of India and China in eastern Ladakh since May 2020, his visit is regarded as being very significant.
Today marks the opening of the SCO meeting in Goa. It is attended by the defence ministers of every SCO member state. General Shangfu is anticipated to talk about the state of the world and the area, as well as matters like security and defence, during the meeting.
