Jul 02, 2020 17:26 IST

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday reiterated his nation's commitment to strengthen the ‘special and privileged strategic partnership with India’. Putin gave his assurance during the telephonic conversation with PM Narendra Modi who called him to congratulate on the successful completion of the vote on constitutional amendments in Russia. A statement issued from Prime Minister's Office said during conversation, both leaders took note of the measures taken by the two countries to fight the Covid-19 pandemic and agreed on the importance of closer ties. Conversation between the two top nation heads is significant in the backdrop of the recent stand-off between the soldiers of Indian Army and China's People's Liberation Army.
