“Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi landed in Moscow in Monday for a two-day visit including talks with President Vladimir Putin. … Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a news briefing that the two leaders would meet informally on Monday evening with the opportunity to talk ‘with a free agenda one-on-one.’ A state banquet was also scheduled for Monday evening. The trip is Modi’s first to Russia since 2019, when he met Putin in the far-eastern city of Vladivostok, although the pair did meet at a Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Uzbekistan in September 2022, seven months into Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Putin visited New Delhi in 2021.” (07/08/24)
