Russian President Vladimir Putin has invited Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to attend the celebrations of 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War that would take place in Moscow in May 2020 during their talks at the Vladivostok Eastern Economic Forum in September, TASS news agency reported.
"We are expecting you in May next year at the celebrations devoted to marking the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, Victory over Nazism," the Russian president said.
Putin thanked the Indian Prime Minister for attending the Eastern Economic Forum in Russia’s Far Eastern port city of Vladivostok as the guest of honor. A serious groundwork had been laid by the ministries, agencies as well as business entities before this meeting, he noted. "A solid package of bilateral documents had been agreed on, including in trade, investment and industrial sector, on military and technical ties, education and culture," Putin said.
Putin emphasized that Russia and India have been working rather actively on the global arena, supporting each other. "Our positions are very close or coincide on many key issues of the international agenda," the president noted.
