BEIJING (PTI): The meetings of the defence and foreign ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), being attended by Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, began in Beijing on Tuesday.

The two meetings are being held as part of the preparations for the SCO summit to be held in the Chinese city of Qingdao in June.
