NEW DELHI, May 31. /TASS/. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s plans for July include, along with attending summits of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and BRICS in Russia’s Ufa, visits to five Central Asian states, including Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Sunday.
"When the prime minister will go to Ufa for a BRICS summit, he will pay visits to five Central Asia countries," she said.
A source close to the foreign ministry told TASS that the programme of the visit was being agreed at the moment. The trip might be broken down into two parts - before and after the summits, the source said. "A visit to Kazakhstan has preliminarily been appointed for July 7," he said, adding that exact dates would be announced as soon as the programme of the visit was agreed.
India’s former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visited Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. His predecessor, Atal Bihari Vajpayee (1998-2004), visited Kazakhtsan.
Summits of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the BRICS (an acronym standing for Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) will be held on July 8-10.
