Press review: How the Putin-Modi summit panned out | Tass |

Moscow and New Delhi see eye to eye on many global issues, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at his meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The summit concluded with the signing of a package of agreements in several areas, including a military-technical cooperation program through 2031. A Joint Statement called "Partnership for Peace, Progress, and Prosperity" was also adopted at the summit's conclusion. According to experts interviewed by Izvestia, Russian-Indian bilateral dialogue is progressing on a positive, although the bilateral agenda has a few bumps along the way.

Cooperation in space and civil nuclear energy, in particular, is growing, according to Modi. Military contacts are also gaining traction, as can be seen with joint drills between the two countries' armed services being performed on a regular basis. India's military forces are 60-70% outfitted with Russian equipment, according to Russian Ambassador to India Nikolay Kudashev. Moscow began delivering its S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to India in November, following a $5 bln contract inked in 2018.
