Narendra Modi is on a visit Russia, for an informal meeting with President Vladimir Putin. They met at the Black sea coastal city, Sochi in the afternoon. The reports suggest that the meeting was to discuss global and regional matters, and the topic of denuclearization, or giving up the weapons of mass destruction. Modi was grateful to Russia for helping the country get a permanent membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. It is an eight nation organization which is made to oversee the cooperation between the member states. He told the media, that, “We are working together on International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC) and BRICS.”
Vladimir Putin welcomed Modi in the country and stated the two have been supporting each other in the matters of international and multilateral areas. He also highlighted that martial relation between the countries.
Modi, while thanking the President for receiving him in the country, said that the relationship that began between the two countries under the governance of Atal Bihari Vajapyee, has now bloomed into a closer friendship. The two leaders are reportedly going to discuss about the Iran Deal, through which both of the countries receive oil. This is Narendra Modi’s second informal meeting this year, as he also visited China last month,but didn’t sign any official agreement with the Leader, Xi Jinping. Modi is also going to attend the annual summit that is going to be held at the latter end of the year.
