Speaking at an event to mark Russia Day yesterday, Kudashev said friendship and strategic partnership of Russia and India has all the prerequisites to thrive and blossom for the security and prosperity of not only the two countries, but also the world at large.
Swaraj was chief guest at the event yesterday.
"Let me take this opportunity to, first and foremost, thank our chief guest Sushma Swaraj-ji for her personal valuable contribution to the strengthening of ties and cooperation between our countries, which are second to none," the envoy said.
The two countries have diplomatic ties for the past 71 years and this year also marks the 25th anniversary of the Treaty on Friendship and Cooperation between the two countries.
Russia is one of the few nations with whom India holds an annual summit.
Putin will be in India in October for the annual summit between the two countries.
"It comes as no surprise that it is our common goal to continue fulfilling the inexhaustible potential of Russia-India trade, investment, technological, scientific and cultural interaction as well as strengthening our cooperation multilaterally in the near future and beyond," the envoy said.
