PM, Putin to hold informal summit next week in Sochi

PM Narendra Modi to Meet Russian President Vladimir Putin For Informal Summit in Sochi PM Modi to hold informal summit with Putin next week

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to visit Russian Federation next week for a one-on-one "informal" meeting with President Vladimir Putin at the summer beach resort of Sochi on the Black Sea. The two leaders would also discuss their respective national developmental priorities and bilateral matters, the ministry added.

Sources said Modi would most likely reassure Putin of India's commitment to consolidate ties with Russian Federation in defence, nuclear energy, trade and other key sectors. Since the beginning of 2018, they have had several phone conversations. The meeting between PM Narendra Modi and President Vladimir Putin is in accordance with the tradition of regular consultations between India and Russian Federation at the highest levels. By the end of 2017, India was Russia's 17th major trade partner, accounting for 1.6% of the entire trade turnover. President Putin is expected to come to India in the second half of the year for the annual India-Russia summit.

However, unlike the informal summit with Xi, the announcement of PM's visit to Sochi was a surprise as India and Russian Federation are slated to hold their annual summit in India in October.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently argued that the incidents do not involve drivers who are unaware of the disclaimers and warnings. If you are driving a Tesla equipped with Autopilot hardware, you are 3.7 times less likely to be involved in a fatal accident.


Last week, Doval and foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale visited Moscow to meet Russia's national security adviser and foreign minister Sergey Lavrov besides other senior officials. There had been some differences over Pakistan and Afghanistan, but it had never threatened the relationship, as per sources. Observers have termed the move significant to boost investments in India.

As observed during the Indo-Chinese informal summit in Wuhan, there will be no deliverables or agreements announced after the Sochi summit. The withdrawal of U.S. from the global nuclear deal with Iran and the impending summit of President Donald Trump with North Korea's Kim Jong-un has introduced more variables with uncertain outcome. This was reiterated to Moscow only in April when Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman visited Russian Federation and discussed a slew of defence deals, including the S-400 air-defence missile systems. Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in the Kremlin.
