MOSCOW, October 21 (Itar-Tass) - Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said his country was grateful to Russia for contributing to strengthen India’s positions on the international arena.
India hopes to continue strengthening cooperation with Russia, Singh said on Monday.
The Indian Prime Minister said the country thanked Russia for receiving the status of U.N. Security Council permanent member and joining international export control regimes.
He praised the development of cooperation between Moscow and New Delhi at the bilateral level and within multilateral formats. Cooperation between the two countries, including the G20 and BRICS, will assume paramount significance. Both parties’ interests coincide in the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, cyber and space security, Singh said.
Russia, which is a strong and prosperous country, meets India’s interests. Energetic and broad partnership will benefit both countries and help ensure stability and prosperity in Eurasia and outside it, the Indian premier said.
