External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Sunday that both New Delhi and Beijing have agreed to work together on the issues like terrorism, climate change, sustainable development and global healthcare.

After holding bilateral talks with her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on the sidelines of SCO foreign ministers' meet, Swaraj, while addressing a joint press conference here, said, "We (India-China) agreed to work together on issues like terrorism, climate change, sustainable development, global healthcare etc."

Swaraj further said China has also agreed to share data on Sutlej and Brahmaputra rivers in 2018.

"China has confirmed data sharing on Sutlej and Brahmaputra rivers in 2018. As it directly affects lives of people living there we welcome this," she said.
