Relations between India and Russia can be described as vibrant and they have been marked by close cooperation on the basis of friendship and trust for many decades, the ambassador said.
He noted the new dynamism that these intentions had acquired new dynamism in the past several years after the formation of the new cabinet. It could be seen in many areas of cooperation.
India and Russia have a tradition of organizing annual summits alternately in either of the two countries, Dr. Raghavan said. “This tradition was founded by Vladimir Putin when he visited India for the first time.”Over the past six months, the Indian Prime Minister has had two opportunities to meet with Vladimir Putin - at the BRICS summit in Brazil and at the G20 summit in Australia.
Cooperation between India and Russia covers all the spheres of human activity from politics to atomic energy, defense, space exploration, science, technologies, culture and trade, Raghavan said.
The forthcoming talks will make it possible for the Russian and Indian leaders to map out new guidelines for collaboration and to boost the spheres where the ties are not developed sufficiently for the time being, he said.
Earlier reports spoke of the two sides’ readiness to sign more than fifteen intergovernmental agreements on cooperation during the visit, the dates and details of which were still being discussed.
Ambassador Raghavan confirmed on his part that the package of documents to be signed in New Delhi included more than fifteen documents.
