Russia’s Emergency Situations Ministry and India’s Interior Ministry have created a commission on emergency situations.

On Wednesday, Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov and Indian Interior Minister Sushilkumar Shinde signed a document on the Russian-Indian commission on emergency situations. “We should work out a simplified model for providing aid to each other... It is true that our Indian colleagues do not like to ask for aid and we also do not like. However, during large-scale disasters - floods, tsunamis and earthquakes, specialists’ joint efforts help minimize the losses,” Puchkov said.

He expressed hope that this mechanism would start operating within weeks.

In addition, Puchkov proposed the Indian colleagues to work on developing systems of space monitoring, observation and laboratory control.

The Russian-Indian commission will inform everyone about the direct threat to natural and technogenic catastrophes and work out proposals to train specialists.

Russia and India will also exchange information about research studies and plan research projects.
