Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Moscow, Thursday, to discuss bilateral relations as well as current international issues.

“I am pleased to stress that we are consistently and confidently developing an exclusive strategic partnership between India and Russia,” Putin stated. He went on to say that relations between the two countries are developing in political, economic and humanitarian spheres.

Narendra Modi also stressed that India has a “strategic partnership" with Russia. “We have Russia as a reliable friend in the political and international arena. Russia has always been on our side in difficult times,” he added.

Other political issues such as the UN, the economic situation of the BRICS, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) were on the agenda of Modi's visit to Russia. India has also planned to purchase five S-400 Triumf air defence systems, amounting to $5-6 billion (€6-7 billion), with two more deals on the table for utility and medium lift helicopters including a deal to purchase 200 Kamov-226T utility helicopters.

The Indian prime minister is on a two-day state visit to Moscow in order to attend the 16th India-Russia annual summit talks.
