     On May 11, 2011, the Russian Embassy in New Delhi hosted a farewell reception in honour of H.E. Mr Ajai Malhotra, Ambassador-Designate of India to Russia, who is leaving for Moscow. The gathering saw top officials from the MEA of India, other key ministries and departments as well as leading governmental agencies and companies who closely cooperate with Russia, Indian veteran diplomats, prominent politicians and public figures, reputed scholars, journalists.

Ambassador Alexander M. Kadakin warmly welcomed his colleague who has successfully and fruitfully worked in Kenya and Seychelles, the US, Romania, Kuwait, in the Permanent Missions to the UN in Geneva and New York, in the headquarters in New Delhi, and twice in Moscow – in the 1980s and 1990s.

A.M.Kadakin stressed that the new Indian Ambassador starts his mission in Moscow from the unprecedentedly high starting point identified in December 2010 when our leaders – President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh announced that Russian-Indian relations had reached a new level – that of special privileged strategic partnership. “Through joint efforts we are to steadily strengthen our bilateral cooperation in order to make this format, unprecedented in the world diplomatic parlance, increasingly substantial and diversified”.

A.Malhotra accentuated that for him this nomination is “a great honour and a sign of high trust”. He is determined to facilitate by all means the advance of Russian-Indian partnership and stronger friendly ties between the people of our two countries. The Indian diplomat sincerely thanked for the organized reception filled with cordiality and warmth.
