MOSCOW, December 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s president will visit India in 2012.
The two countries confirmed this in the Joint statement on further improvement of the Russia-India strategic partnership in view of challenges of the changing world, which Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev and India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh signed on Friday following their negotiations.
“India’s prime minister expressed appreciation of the hospitality during his official visit to Moscow and invited Russia’s president to visit India. The invitation was accepted with gratitude,” the document reads.
The Statement does not mention the visit’s time. However, traditionally leaders visit each other in a year’s time, thus a visit of Russia’s leader to New Delhi is due in 2012. It is also traditional, that visit exchange happens in December, thus Russia’s new president will go to India. Dmitry Medvedev will leave the office in May of 2012.
