Russia’s foreign minister has targeted the US over the S-400 missile defense system deal with India. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, ‘This deal has not only symbolic significance. The deal has practical implications for India’s defense capabilities. He said that we saw that there were attempts on the part of America to weaken this cooperation. An attempt was made on behalf of America that India should accept its own words as to how development should be done in this area. Serge, while praising India for this deal, said that our friend has given a strong answer to America that it is a sovereign nation.
The Russian foreign minister said, “Our Indian friends have clearly and concretely conveyed that we are a sovereign nation. We can decide whose weapons we want to buy and who to partner in this sector or any other matter. Meanwhile, India and Russia have signed a deal worth more than Rs 5,000 crore for AK-203 rifles. Under this, more than 5 lakh rifles are to be manufactured in Amethi, UP. Apart from this, many other agreements have also been signed. Not only this, there has been a deal between Russia and India for military cooperation for the next 10 years i.e. from 2021 to 2031.
Russia has agreed to cooperate on the sharing of military technology in the agreement with India. Let us tell you that some time ago there was a comment from the US about the S-400 deal. Regarding this, America had instructed India not to do any such deal. However, India has refused to accept that advice of America. Not only this, an attempt has also been made to give a new signal from the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Delhi. In fact, the friendship between India and Russia also matters regarding the situation in Afghanistan. Recently, a meeting was also called in Delhi regarding the situation in Afghanistan. Representatives of many countries including Russia, Iran participated in it.
