Indo Russia ties are based on special and privileged Strategic Partnership: Rajnath Singh

@PIB_India
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has said that India and Russia share relationship based on special and privileged Strategic Partnership. He said Russia has assured that the ongoing military contracts between the two countries will be maintained, and in a number of cases, will be taken forward in a shorter time. Mr Rajnath Singh was speaking to the media in Moscow yesterday after meeting Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov.

Mr. Singh, who is on a three-day visit to Russia, attended the 75th Anniversary of Victory Day Parade today. He said, the participation of Tri-Service contingent of the Indian Armed Forces in the Victory parade gives immense sense of pride. The Defence Minister said his visit to Moscow is the first foreign visit of an official delegation from India after the COVID19 pandemic.

Terming it as a sign of special friendship, Mr Singh said, despite all the difficulties of the pandemic, bilateral relations between Delhi and Moscow have been good at various levels. He said, during the meeting, Indo-Russian defence cooperation was reviewed and plans to further extend it was discussed.

Affirming defence relationship as one the important pillars in the relationship between the two countries, Mr. Singh informed that Indian proposals have received positive responses from the Russian side. He asserted that the traditional friendship between India and Russia remains strong and both countries continue to cooperate on mutual and shared interests. The Defence Minister conveyed greetings to the people of Russia and especially the veterans, who he said, have immensely contributed for the common security of both the nations.

He also remembered the Indian soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the second world war and said, many of these soldiers were part of the war efforts to provide assistance to the Soviet Army.

The meeting of Indian and Russian Defence Ministers holds high significance in terms of early procurement of S-400 Anti Missile system from Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin is likely to visit India later this year.
