We welcome the entry of India into the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, which opens up new prospects for cooperation, the Minister of Defense emphasized, TASS



He noted that for many decades bilateral cooperation between the Russian Federation and India has the character of a privileged strategic partnership.

Over the past years, Russia and India have developed especially close, friendly ties that are distinguished by constancy and the highest level of trust. This was once again confirmed by the results of the meeting of the President of the Russian Federation Mr. Putin with the Prime Minister of the Republic of India Narendra Modi during the Russian-Indian summit of June 1 in St. Petersburg

According to the Russian minister, regular confidential meetings of the heads of two states give a powerful impetus to the development of bilateral relations, including in the defense sphere.
The consolidated position of our countries has a stabilizing effect on the international situation.

      It turns out interesting: the former satellites of the Soviet Union became vassals of the West, and the former British colonies became allies of Russia. And who said that the Union lost the Cold War? India and Pakistan will be predominantly Poland and Bulgaria. smile

        They are taking revenge on the UK, not in vain they are buying up their car factories, and now they are working for Indians laughing
        Until recently, Ford could boast of two more British brands - Jaguar (in 1989 Ford bought Jaguar for $ 2,5 billion) and Land Rover (in 2000 it was overbought by Ford for 2,75 billion dollars from BMW). In 2008, both brands were put up for sale due to huge debts. In June 2008, they were bought by the Indian Tata Motors.

      If Shoigu is right, they should give him an elephant according to the good Indian tradition.

    Everyone considers the SCO only an economic union, only we want and think that the SCO can become like NATO ... For me, it’s necessary to try to replace the UN with the SCO ... The UN has died as a structure! Like once the League of Nations ...

      The UN is nothing, the Security Council is everything. With the abolition of the UN, the Security Council will also crumble, in which members of the nuclear club, mostly states with nuclear weapons. And how then to bring them together? Really within the framework of the SCO? belay

        Not all the nuclear powers are far away ... And the countries that live on it, and not from behind the puddles, should have to make decisions that concern the life of the Eurasian continent so that someone tells us how to better build our lives!
