BRICS Summit: PM Modi meets Russian President Vladimir Putin

Xiamen, Sep 4 (IBNS): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday on the sidelines of the ninth BRICS Summit in China

The BRICS Summit 2017 is taking place at Xiamen between September 3 and September 5.

The PMO has put up a tweet as well to say the meeting between the topmost leaders of the two countries was to deepen the India-Russia partnership.

Earlier, the PM even met his Chinese counterpart and made courteous verbal exchanges, after the months long Doklam standoff between the two countries came to an end.

In an address to the BRICS Summit, PM Modi said:  "Our women’s empowerment programmes are productivity multipliers that mainstream women in nation building."

"We need to mainstream our youth in our joint initiatives; scaled up cooperation in skill development and exchange of best practices" Modi added.

In a significant shift to the diplomatic relation, both India and China have agreed to disengage border personnel at Doklam in Sikkim border, said India's Ministry of External Affairs.

The Ministry of External Affairs of India said in a statement on last Monday that both the countries had communicated with each other regarding the Doklam issue in the last few weeks.

"In recent weeks, India and China have maintained diplomatic communication in respect of the incident at Doklam. During these communications, we were able to express our views and convey our concerns and interests" the statement reads.

"On this basis, expeditious disengagement of border personnel at the face-off site at Doklam has been agreed to and is on-going" the MEA added.

The ongoing military standoff  has heightened tension at the Bhutan-India-China tri-junction in Doklam, a disputed territory claimed by both Bhutan and China, where the Indian Army personnel have reached to stop China from building a road.
