New Delhi, Moscow exchange 15 MoUs; Russia to build 20 more nuclear power plants in India, says Putin

"Indian energy concerns are also invited to participate in other promising projects, such as Far Eastern LNG and Arctic LNG 2", Putin told a press conference following the talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday.

Upon his arrival, Modi received a Guard of Honour at the Vladivostok International Airport.

In a special gesture on Wednesday morning, President Putin took PM Modi by boat to "Zvezda" shipbuilding complex where the two leaders spent two hours together.

"I look forward to discussing with my friend President Putin the entire gamut of our bilateral partnership as well as regional and worldwide issues of mutual interest", he said in his departure statement in New Delhi. Ahead of his visit, PM Modi said his visit underlines the desire of the two countries to diversify and further strengthen bilateral relations.

Russian Federation and India, historically allied countries who already build nuclear plants together and have similar plans for Kalashnikov automatic rifles, did not give details on the military cooperation, but said the collaboration would "include establishing joint development and production of military equipment, spare parts and components as well as improving the system of after sales services", according to a joint statement.

He further said that both the countries were against outside influence in the internal matters of any nation.

Addressing the situation, PM Modi said that India and Russian Federation are against outside influence in internal matters of any nation. As two integral friends, we have met regularly.

The PM has been decorated with the "Order of Saint Andrew the Apostle" for exceptional services in promoting special and privileged strategic partnership between Russia and India and friendly relations between the Russian and the Indian people. "I have also spoken to you on the phone many times, and I never feel any doubt during these conversations", Modi said. Vladivostok, like the rest of the far-east region of Russian Federation is rich in resources but remains largely underdeveloped.

Gokhale said India is looking at Russian Federation as a major source of hydrocarbons so as to end its complete dependency on the Gulf region. I express my gratitude to you and people of Russian Federation.

A three-day global economic forum will open in the Russian Far East city of Vladivostok on Wednesday.

The energy pact was one of 15 signed in areas ranging from cooperation in the production of spare parts for Russian or Soviet-origin Indian military equipment to infrastructure finance, besides energy cooperation, after talks between Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Vladivostok.

India is a key client for Russia's arms industry and Moscow will be looking to make progress on new deals during the talks. "India-Russia relationship goes beyond relations between two capitals and are now at the cusp of expanding to new frontiers", Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted. The PM also interacted with the management and workers of the shipyard.
