India, Russia sign roadmap to boost bilateral military cooperation”

This came during the 17th India-Russia inter-governmental commission on military-technical cooperation, which was co-chaired by defence minister Arun Jaitley and his Russian counterpart General Sergey Shoygu in Moscow on Friday.

Moreover, both countries' Defence Ministers gave a high praise to anti-terror and naval exercises, which were held previous year.

At the end of the session Shoigu and Jaitley signed a corresponding document, the official Tass news agency reported without providing details of the roadmap. Just $5 a month. "We welcome India's accession to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization as it opens up new prospects for cooperation", he said. "It was once again confirmed at the recent meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which took place in St. Petersburg on June 1".

India and Russian Federation have finalized a roadmap to further boost bilateral defence cooperation, which ranges from joint development of futuristic weapon systems to a major upgrade of military-to-military ties.

The roadmap includes specific activities to be concluded by both the sides, and aims to enhance cooperation in the field of political and military dialogue, besides exercises between the armed forces of the two countries.

Ahead of the visit, the Defence Ministry in New Delhi had said the meeting will review the entire range of military and military-technical cooperation issues between India and Russian Federation within the framework of the Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership between the two countries.

Addressing the plenary of TECHNOPROM 2017, a leading forum for technological development Showcasing India's "path- breaking" initiatives for defence production, Jaitley, who is in Russia on a three-day visit, has invited Russian firms to set up joint ventures with Indian firms and manufacture advanced military platforms through technology transfer. Over 500 servicemen and up to 50 military vehicles participated in the exercise.

On Wednesday, the Indian defense minister made an effort to mend fences by encouraging Russian defense firms to continue to continue their engagement in India. "This can start with platforms of Russian origin where the requirement is in large numbers and is recurring in nature", Jaitley said.
