0 1

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he had a “good conversation” with Russian President Vladimir Putin and both leaders agreed to develop a roadmap for future initiatives to further strengthen the India-Russia Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership.

He also exchanged views on various regional and global issues, including Russia’s Presidency of the BRICS.

“I had a good conversation with President Putin. We discussed various positive developments in our Special & Privileged Strategic Partnership and agreed to chalk out a roadmap for future initiatives. We also had a useful exchange of views on various regional and global issues, including Russia’s Presidency of the BRICS,” said PM Modi in a post on X.

In a telephone conversation held yesterday, the two leaders reviewed progress on a number of issues of bilateral cooperation in follow-up to recent high-level exchanges between the two countries.

“They positively assessed the developments in bilateral relations and agreed to develop a roadmap for future initiatives to further strengthen the India-Russia Special & Privileged Strategic Partnership,” the PMO added.

Notably, during Putin’s visit to India in December 2010, the Strategic Partnership was elevated to the level of a “Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership.”

They also exchanged views on regional and global issues of mutual interest.

The PM also conveyed his best wishes for Russia’s presidency of BRICS in 2024 and assured Russia of India’s full support. The two leaders agreed to remain in touch.

As Russia has begun the 2024 BRICS chairmanship, Putin has emphasised that, under the motto “Strengthening Multilateralism for Equitable Global Development and Security,” they will act precisely in this manner and focus on positive and constructive cooperation with all countries concerned.

“On January 01, Russia was passed the baton of the BRICS chairmanship, an association that, according to the decision adopted by the 15th BRICS Summit in August 2022, now includes 10 countries,” Russian President Putin said in his remarks on January 02.

Furthermore, as Russia assumes its chairmanship, it looks forward to working productively with all countries in the BRICS orbit.

Russia has been a longstanding and time-tested partner for India. Development of India-Russia relations has been a key pillar of India’s foreign policy, according to the Ministry of External Affairs. (ANI)
