Russian, Indian leaders to discuss energy, trade in Moscow
Bilateral discussions between Russia's president and India's prime minister on Monday are expected to focus on cooperation in energy and civil and military technology, as well as pharmaceuticals and the diamond industry.
Dmitry Medvedev welcomed Manmohan Singh to Moscow on Sunday as the two met for informal talks. The full-fledged discussions on Monday will be held in the Kremlin.
Singh told Russian media before his visit that India is interested in diversifying bilateral relations with Russia and proposes to seek new areas for cooperation, such as in the pharmaceutical and diamond industries, and in bio-, nano- and information technology.
Singh also called for greater technical and scientific cooperation both in civil and in the defense sector.
"We must revitalize our cooperation in the cutting edges of science and technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and transfer of high technologies," he said. "Defense cooperation is a key pillar of our relations. We would like to strengthen it, and move towards joint design, research, development and manufacture."
