Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited Russian President Vladimir Putin to come to India in 2020 to participate in the next summit of the leaders of the two countries.
The corresponding statement was adopted following the talks at the highest level in Vladivostok in the framework of the WEF-2019.
Putin also invited Narendra Modi to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Victory in World War II. He noted that he will meet with the Prime Minister of India at the BRICS summit in Brazil, which will be held in November this year.
The Russian leader said that during the visit of Modi to Moscow he will be awarded the Order of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called.
“It was a great honor for us to award you the Order of St. Andrew the First-Called. This is the highest state award in Russia. I think it will be right if we hold the solemn act of presenting this award solemnly in the Moscow Kremlin,” the Russian President said.
In April, Putin signed a decree awarding Modi with this order “for outstanding services in developing a particularly privileged strategic partnership between the Russian Federation and the Republic of India and friendly ties between the Russian and Indian peoples.”
