Putin Aides To Visit India For Talks On Trade, Space


Two top aides of Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit India next week for talks aimed at diversifying and expanding cooperation in areas ranging from trade to outer space and to prepare the grounds for the annual summit of the two countries.

Dmitry Rogozin, currently director general of the state-run space agency Roscosmos, and minister for economic development Maxim Oreshkin will be in New Delhi between July 9 and 10 for the crucial talks, people familiar with developments said.

Their visit, coming close on the heels of a trip last month by Yury Trutnev, the deputy prime minister and presidential envoy for Russia’s Far East, is aimed at firming up the agenda and identifying new areas for cooperation ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Vladivostok to attend the Eastern Economic Forum between September 4 and 6. Read more
