"Today is Russian National Day, but it is also the day of Indo-Russian friendship. This friendship is evolving and reaching new heights," Kudashev told ANI.
"The two giants-- India and Russia-- will define the world landscape. If all goes well, the dynamic relationship will continue. It is a continuation of an old friendship. There is a feeling of joy and great satisfaction that the friendship between the two countries will continue and last from near to the distant future," the Russia Ambassador said a day ahead Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are scheduled to hold talks.
Modi and Putin are scheduled to hold bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the SCO summit, along with Chinese President Xi Jinping. However, no formal meetings have been announced to take place between Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who will also share the same table at Bishkek.
