Qingdao, Jun 9 (IBNS): The two Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) were signed by India and China following the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit on Saturday.

The two countries have signed MoUs on sharing hydroelectric information of Brahmaputra river by China to India and an amendment of protocol on phytosanitary requirements for exporting rice from India to China to include non-Basmati rice.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted, "Following PM @narendramodi meeting with Chinese President Xi, two MoUs were signed - Sharing hydrological information of Brahmaputra river by China to India& amendment of Protocol on phytosanitary requirements for exporting rice from India to China to include non-Basmati rice"

Modi and Jinping also discussed issues related to bilateral and global importance on Saturday.

The PM said his talks with the President will add further 'vigour' to the India-China friendship.

"Met this year’s SCO host, President Xi Jinping this evening. We had detailed discussions on bilateral and global issues. Our talks will add further vigour to the India-China friendship," Modi tweeted.

Xi Jinping has accepted Modi's invitation to hold an informal summit in India in 2019.
