After a long wait between India and Russia, a defense deal worth Rs 5,100 crore has been reached for AK-203 rifles. These rifles will be manufactured in Amethi, Uttar Pradesh. The deal was finalized during talks between Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu on Monday. Under this deal, more than 5 lakh rifles are to be produced, which will be of great help to the Indian security forces. Not only this, it is also considered important for the development of Amethi and the availability of employment. There has also been an agreement between Russia and India for cooperation in military technology for the next 10 years. This agreement will be in force from 2021 to 2031.

Giving information about the deal, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh tweeted, ‘We congratulate Russia for providing strong support to India. We hope that this cooperation will bring about peace, harmony and stability. It is a matter of pleasure that we have signed a number of agreements regarding the manufacture of small arms and military cooperation. PM Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin are scheduled to meet this evening. This important agreement has been signed before this annual summit. Apart from the meeting of the heads of state of India and Russia, 2+2 summit is also going on between the two countries. Under this, talks have taken place between the two Defense Ministers and now External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar Prasad is also going to meet his Russian counterpart.

During this summit, apart from defense agreements between India and Russia, there can be some agreements in the field of trade, space, technology and energy. Talks are also expected between the two sides on Afghanistan and regional security. On Saturday itself, the Government of India had taken a decision regarding the manufacturing of AK-203 rifles in Amethi, UP. This will be done as a joint venture under the name Indo-Russian Rifles Private Limited. Last week, the Cabinet Committee on Security had given information about the manufacturing of rifles in Amethi.

Three decades old rifles will now be retired

The AK-203 rifles will be inducted into the Army and other forces to replace the INSAS rifles. These rifles have been a part of the army for the last three decades and there has been a demand for new weapons in their place for a long time. The first consignment of S-400 missile systems may also arrive in Putin’s visit. Russian officials say exports of some components of the air defense system have already started.
