Will partner Moscow to develop Russian Far East: PM Narendra Modi

NEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi on Friday reiterated India’s commitment, as part of its Act East Policy, to work as a reliable partner of Russia in President Vladimir Putin’s vision for development of the Russian Far East. Addressing the 6th Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok, Modi stressed on the importance of greater economic and commercial engagement between the two sides in line with the ‘Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership’.
The friendship between India and Russia has stood the test of time, said Modi. “Most recently it was seen in our robust cooperation during the Covid-19 pandemic including in the area of vaccines. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of the health and pharma sectors in our bilateral cooperation,” he said.
Expressing happiness that the Chennai — Vladivostok Maritime Corridor is making headway, Modi said this connectivity project along with the International North-South Corridor will bring India and Russia physically closer to each other.
“Despite the pandemic related restrictions there had been good progress in strengthening our business links in many areas. This include long term supply of coking coal to the Indian steel industry. We are also exploring new opportunities in agro industry, ceramics, strategic and rare earth minerals and diamonds,” said Modi.
Despite the challenges of Covid-19 pandemic, the government said in a statement, an Indian delegation led by minister of petroleum and natural gas Hardeep Singh Puri comprising leading Indian oil and gas companies are attending the India-Russia Business dialogue within the framework of EEF.
