Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit to Russia on May 21 for an informal summit, the Ministry of External affairs said on Monday. The summit between PM Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin will be held in the city of Sochi.

The occasion will be of great significance for both the leaders to exchange views on international matters in a broad and long term perspective. The objective of the summit will be to further strengthen Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership.

Both the leaders will also hold discussions on their respective national developmental priorities and bilateral matters.

“This informal Summit in Sochi between Prime Minister Modi and President Putin is in keeping with the tradition of regular consultations between India and Russia at the highest levels,” the MEA said.

Last month, Modi had travelled to Chinese city of Wuhan for a two-day informal summit with President Xi Jingping and exchanged views on further enhancing the India-China relationship.
