Vladimir Putin had a meeting with Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the BRICS summit.

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Prime Minister, friends,

I am delighted to be meeting with you once again today.

I remember your visit to Sochi in May this year, when we had very good, friendly and substantive talks.

I am now preparing for my upcoming visit to India in October this year. It should be said that our efforts have not been in vain. Our trade is growing. It increased by 24 percent last year and by 26 percent in the first five months of 2018.

I am happy to see you.

Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi (retranslated): Your Excellency, I am happy to be able to meet with you once again.

I have warm recollections of my visit to Sochi. The fact that we were together all the time shows that our friendship is growing ever stronger. I am glad to have this opportunity to meet with you again.

Your Excellency, Russia has always been a sporting nation, but the way it held the World Cup has shown the world that it also has brilliant management abilities. The world could see how successfully Russia held this championship, which has strengthened Russia’s image throughout the world.

Vladimir Putin: Thank you.
