◆Russia and India agree on multipolarity: PM Modi

【New Delhi】India and Russia on October 5 made a strong pitch to create multipolarity in geo-politics amid current flux.
 Modi and visiting Russian president who spent hours with each other on Thursday and Friday signalled that Delhi and Moscow are pillars of stability in current tumultuous geo-politics and geo-economics that has been hit by US decision to pull out of Iranian nuclear deal and Sino-US trade war.

○Eyeing trade ties, India pitches for defence industrial park

【New Delhi】Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 5 pitched for a dedicated defence industrial park as he sought to expand investment ties and make business partnership a key pillar of the decades' old ties.
 "We want Russia to open a dedicated defence industrial park," Modi said while addressing the first ever mega Indo-Russia business summit comprising 100 CEOs from each side "Under President Putin's leadership, India – Russia relations have reached new heights. Our 'special and privileged strategic partnership' show our mutual interests," he said.

○India, Russia ink action plan for second nuclear plant

【New Delhi】India and Russia on October 5 inked two documents in the fields of civil nuclear energy and space cooperation, which would take the strategic partnership between the two nations to the next level.
 The two sides concluded an action plan for expanding civil nuclear partnership, comprising a second site for Russian nuclear reactors in India and cooperation in other markets in West Asia, Africa and Latin America.

○S-400 deal announced quietly after Doval's opposition, Modi's approval

【New Delhi】The low-key announcement on Friday of India’s $5.43-billion purchase of Russia’s air defence missile system contrasted sharply with the flourish with which Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Francois Hollande announced their April 2015 agreement to supply India 36 Rafale fighters.
 Meeting the press in New Delhi, Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin avoided any mention of the S-400 during their comments to the media. Nor did the contract feature in an official Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) list of documents signed.
 Sources close to the negotiations said, while Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharman has consistently backed the S-400 purchase, National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval — who is more alert to the US signalling — wanted to postpone signing the contract.
