New Delhi: The Russian Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) Roman Babushkin said that Moscow looks forward to welcoming Prime Minister Narendra Modi in May next year for the Victory Day celebration.
“We are looking forward to welcoming PM Modi in Moscow for the May 9 Victory Day celebrations and it is a remarkable event,” he told news agency ANI.
India’s acceptance of the invitation is a clear reflection of the deep level of trust and mutual understanding between the two countries.
On Tuesday, Modi left for Brazil to attend the summit of BRICS (Britain, Russia, India, China and South Africa).
While talking about the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant, the DCM said, “This is a unique project in our bilateral relationship and this is a two-way movement. Currently, we are having six reactors already generating power for local consumers and two more are under construction.”
About the US threat on S-400 deal, the DCM said, “No sanctions can undermine the India-Russia bilateral special privileged partnership. This is also about military-technical cooperation because it is in our national interest. As far as S-400 is concerned, India is interested to have and Russia is ready to provide it.”
