Read previewIndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made Russia the destination of his first bilateral visit after securing a historic third term in office. On Monday, the US State Department said it has raised concerns with New Delhi about India's relationship with Russia. AdvertisementModi's advances toward Putin come less than two months after the usually reserved Chinese leader Xi Jinping hugged Putin not once, but twice — dealing another blow to the West's isolation of Russia. India imported about $60 billion of goods a year from Russia in the last fiscal year. "Due to Russia's close ties with China, India can turn to Russia to help defuse crises when bilateral geopolitical tensions flare up between India and China," he added.

AdvertisementThe US has raised "some concerns" about India's relationship with Russia with New Delhi, Kurt Campbell, the US Deputy Secretary of State, said last month. However, Washington acknowledges that India's ties with Russia are different from its ties with the US. Make no mistake — the United States and its allies are more consequential for India's future than its relationship with Russia," wrote Shinde. India needs to leverage its historical ties with Russia to secure its economy and security, so Modi isn't just in Russia for a goodwill trip. India imports about $60 billion of goods a year from Russia, but Russia buys less than 10% of this amount from India, per Bloomberg.

CNN —Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed to “intensity efforts” to deescalate tensions at their contested border, in a rare face-to-face meeting since a deadly clash strained relations more than three years ago. Face-to-face meetings between the leaders of India and China, the world’s two most populous nations, are rare. They had a brief conversation weeks later on the sidelines of the Group of 20 (G20) leaders’ meeting in Bali, Indonesia. India’s decision to host this year’s SCO virtually meant that Modi and Xi did not have an opportunity for a face-to-face meeting. Xi is also expected to attend the G20 leaders’ summit in New Delhi next month.

South Africa has also voiced support. Over 40 countries have expressed interest in joining BRICS, say South African officials.

NEW DELHI, June 20 (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi left for the U.S. on Tuesday on a state visit that has been projected as a milestone in ties between the two countries that would deepen and diversify their partnership. Modi has been to the U.S. five times since becoming prime minister in 2014 but the June 21-24 trip will be his first with the full diplomatic status of an official state visit. Washington sees India as a vital partner in its efforts to push back against China's expanding influence worldwide. Modi's visit comes amid differences in the positions of Washington and New Delhi over Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The world has full confidence that India’s top-most priority is peace," he said in the interview published on Tuesday.
