Putin, Modi discuss military cooperation at Sochi talks – spokesman

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi covered military and technical cooperation, among other issues, during their talks on May 21, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday. “The agenda of yesterday’s negotiations included the topic of military and technical cooperation,” he said. The spokesman, however,  refused to answer a question on whether Putin and Modi had discussed the delivery of S-400 missile systems to India, TASS reported. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday that Putin and Modi put particular emphasis on economic cooperation, adding that the parties “touched upon the entire spectrum of the privileged strategic partnership.” According to the minister, other topics included the energy sector, high-tech and nuclear energy.
