Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin are expected to address a range of issues, including key priorities aimed at expanding ties in the areas of defense, economy and energy.
Russian President Vladimir Putin will travel to India on December 6 to host the 21st summit between the two countries. The last session of this conference was in 2019. Last year it did not take place due to corona disease.
The president and Putin are expected to tackle a wide range of issues, with key priorities aimed at expanding ties in defense, economy and energy.
Last week, News Agencies reported that the base for military-to-military cooperation may be renewed over the next decade, and the technology and research coalition can be flagged.
At the same time, India and Russia are also expected to hold a summit on February 2 to meet with each country’s foreign and defense ministers.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu will travel to India for the second and second meetings.
Lavrov and Shoigu will meet respectively with Foreign Minister S Jaishankar and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh. Jaishankar and Singh are due to meet in Moscow this month, but plans have changed since the fall season began on November 29.
A Russian expert in Delhi said the leaders “will have in-depth discussions on key regional and international issues, including the situation in the Asia-Pacific (Indo-Pacific) region and the development of Afghanistan and Syria.”
The spokesman also said the two sides are expected to hold talks on a trilateral meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and Russia-India-China (RIC).
India and Russia have also reached the final stages of negotiations on a logistics support agreement and are expected to sign at the summit or February 2 meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Putin.
The agreement allows the two armies to use each other as a base for repair and supply, in addition to supporting the expansion of joint defense cooperation.
