New Delhi, December 21
The Russian envoy to India on Monday cleared the air over Moscow’s strengthening ties with Pakistan and reiterated its offer for the advanced Su-57 fighter.
“I sincerely do not think India should be worried about Russia’s commitment to respecting its sensitivity,” said Russian deputy ambassador Roman Babushkin at a virtual press conference when asked about Moscow’s recent military exercises and involvement in an ambitious trans-country pipeline in Pakistan.
Russian Ambassador to India Nikolai Kudashev said Moscow was committed to sharing “almost everything” with India to realise the vision of ‘aatmanirbhar Bharat’. This included unveiling Su-57 in India next February. — TNS
