The statement from India and Russia came at a time when such reports came out in the media that the annual summit meeting of the two countries was not held because Moscow had objections to India’s involvement in the four-nation coalition quad. The four-nation coalition quad includes India, the United States, Russia and Australia.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Shrivastava said in his response to the report that the India-Russia Annual Summit in 2020 was not caused by the Kovid-19 epidemic. It was a mutually agreed decision between the two governments.
Any speculation about this is wrong and misleading. He said that it is particularly irresponsible to broadcast false news about important relationships. At the same time, Russian Ambassador to India Nikolai Kudashev described this news as far from reality.
He said that I find it far from reality. Special alliances between India and Russia are progressing well despite the Kovid-19. The Russian ambassador said that we are in touch with Indian friends about the new dates of the summit, which were postponed due to epidemic-related reasons. We are confident that it will be held in the near future.
