During the meeting, they discussed ties between the two countries in addition to a variety of issues of mutual interest.

Earlier, Sheikh Abdullah has participated in the summit, where John Chipman, Director-General and Chief Executive, International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), has delivered a keynote speech, in which he affirmed the importance of Asian Security Summit as an inevitable event for the region's security structure in Asia and the Pacific Ocean countries.
