The Congress on Sunday expressed hope that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government uses the BRICS Summit platform to convince China to impose pressure on Pakistan as part of efforts to bring peace on the border.
"This is the right time as no other countries like Pakistan is here. We can convince them to bring peace on Pakistan border and this will only happen when the Pakistan Government will stop supporting the terrorist organisation. If China will pressurize Pakistan then a major change can be witnessed in Pakistan's army and ISIS," Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit told ANI.
Further commenting on the military deal signed between India and Russia, Dikshit said that both countries share a good relation and Moscow has always been the most favourable countries in terms of buying weapons.
The agreements were signed in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit in Goa.
In a joint statement with Putin, Prime Minister Modi said the agreements on manufacturing of Kamov-226T helicopters, construction of frigates, and acquisition and building of other defence platforms are in synergy with India's technology and security priorities.
