Both Russia and India support a “more just” and “polycentric” world order, and they have demonstrated a close alignment of positions on the most pressing issues, Moscow announced on Monday.
On Monday evening, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar will begin a two-day visit to Russia. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, Jaishankar and Sergey Lavrov will discuss trade and investment, the use of national currencies in trade, “promising projects” in the energy sector, and establishing a security architecture in the Asia-Pacific region during their discussions.
The Russian and Indian governments advocate the active creation of a more just and equal polycentric world order and reject the promotion of imperial diktat on a global scale.
During the visit, Jaishankar will also hold talks with Denis Manturov, the Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Trade and Industry.
