NEW DELHI, October 29 (Itar-Tass) - Russia speaks in favor of supplying weaponry to India on the basis of intergovernmental agreements, Russian ambassador in New Delhi Alexander Kadakin told Indian television Tuesday.
Russia is furnishing India with the most advanced technologies at the moment, he said.
“We’re giving India the best of the all the best things at our own disposal,” Kadakin said. “We’re furnishing India with the most sensitive technologies. I just wonder what kind of bidding contests might have brought a nuclear-powered submarine to this country or the BrahMos cruise missiles, the best of their kind in the world today.”
“Russia would like India to become a great power and we’ve been doing everything in our power for that purpose over several decades,” he said.
Transactions worth billions of U.S. dollars should not be the only measure of Russian-Indian relationship because there is something much greater than that - something that no one would buy for whatever billions of rubles or rupees. It is the friendship and mutual magnetism keeping the two countries and peoples together, Kadakin said.
He stressed the importance of holding annual summits and highlighted the fact that Russia was the first country, which the Indian government established strategic partnership relations with in 2000.
