Acting Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's opening remarks during talks with Ajit Kumar Doval, National Security Advisor to Prime Minister of India, Moscow, May 10, 2018

Thursday, 10 May 2018 12:35

Mr Doval, friends,

We are glad to have this opportunity to hold a meeting at the Russian Foreign Ministry during your stay in Moscow as part of regular contacts between our countries’ security councils.  

We have a very full agenda in our bilateral relations. Economic ties are growing, and a mechanism is being developed to further liberalise trade both bilaterally and as part of India's cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Union.

Our foreign policy coordination is making steady progress as part of regular bilateral contacts between the relevant agencies, as well as in the context of our partnership promotion in multilateral formats. I am speaking of the Russia-India-China (RIC) format, BRICS, and now the SCO, of which India became a full-fledged member last year.  All this allows us to closely interact and coordinate our approaches in the UN and various military and political security mechanisms in the Asia-Pacific region.

I am happy to have the opportunity to talk today about our further work in these formats to solve tasks related to fighting terrorism, organised crime and drug trafficking, and to promote cooperation in practical areas.

Welcome!
