New Delhi, November 26: The diplomatic relation between India and Russia is reaching new heights after crossing 70 long years. Again to give a major boost, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has left for a three-day visit to Russia from 27th-29th November 2017. He will meet top officials in Moscow. As both the countries have long history of close cooperation on matters of shared security concerns, this visit will provide an opportunity to further cement and strengthen the mutually beneficial bilateral ties between both the countries.

Home Minister is likely to sign an Agreement on Cooperation between Ministry of Home Affairs, India and Ministry of Interior of the Russia. He will also sign a Joint Action Plan between the Narcotics Control Bureau, MHA and Ministry of Interior of the Russian Federation.

The signing of a comprehensive security agreement on cooperation in combating terrorism and organized crime with the Ministry of Interior of the Russia would reinforce the relationship between India and Russia through exchange and sharing of information, expertise, best practices and would help in curbing terrorism and enhancing security in the region.

“This year India and Russia are celebrating the 70th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations with each other. Looking forward to deepen and further India’s strategic and security partnership with Russia,” Home Minister tweeted before leaving.
