PM Modi's Russia Visit Redefines Indo-Russian Relations
17 May 2018
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent visit to Russia at the invitation of Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, for an informal summit in the city of Sochi, is path-defining in IndoRussian relations in the backdrop of China's increasing global clout and protectionist approach effected by the US in recent times.
The summit, coming soon after the recent successful engagement between PM Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping in April 2018, recognizes and underlines the rising authority of India as an economic and global force to reckon with, says FICCI.
FICCI sees the visit as an astute step to cultivate and nurture India's geo-strategic and economic interests with the all important global powers. Russia, with proven technological prowess across sectors, is ideally placed to partner with India to realize the hitherto unexplored business and investment opportunities.
