National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Monday met with Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Trade and Industry Denis Manturov and discussed a range of bilateral issues to implement strategic relationship between both countries.
Denis Manturov, who is on a two-day visit to India, will also hold a number of bilateral meetings during his stay in Delhi.
“NSA Shri Ajit Doval met Denis Manturov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Trade & Industry of the Russian Federation on 17 April 2023. Both sides discussed a range of bilateral issues to implement the India-Russia strategic partnership,” a statement from the government said.
Manturov attended a business-to-business dialogue earlier today. He will be co-chairing the meeting of the bilateral Inter-Govern mental Commission with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Tuesday, the statement added.
Doval had met Denis Manturov during his visit to Russia in August last year and the two sides had discussed a range of issues related to bilateral security cooperation.
Manturov’s visit comes in the backdrop of renewed intensity in India-Russia trade ties, especially New Delhi’s procurement of increasing volume of discounted crude oil from that country.
