MOSCOW, August 9. /TASS/. India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed the hope for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in China’s Hangzhou in early September 2016.
"I am looking forward to meeting you again at the Group of 20 summit in China," Modi told Putin in a video linkup timed for the handover of the first unit of the Kudankulam NPP to India.
In the course of the ceremony Modi thanked the Russian leader for assistance in building the power plant. He recalled that a total of five units each having a capacity of 1,000 megawatts were to be constructed.
The Indian leader said Kudankulam was just the beginning of Russia-India cooperation in the energy industry.
"Today’s ceremony is a very happy event for the team of Indian and Russian specialists, scientists and workers. A deep bow to them for their persistent and painstaking work. And congratulations upon this great achievement," Modi said.
In conclusion, as he addressed Putin, Modi said that the completion of the first phase of the Kudankulam project was a great achievement of the two countries in nuclear power, indicative of Russia’s and India’s intention to advance bilateral ties.
"First and foremost it demonstrates your personal commitment, strong support and strong leadership, which have raised our relations to a qualitatively new level. I am very grateful to you for that," Mr. President, Modi said.
