Guess, Russia is about to strengthen its bonding with India regarding Defence sector and war threats! It is reported that Russia President Putin called India to discuss over the issue.
As express.co.uk reported, RUSSIA looks poised to strike an alliance with India after Vladimir Putin called for the development of an “exclusive strategic partnership” after talks on the phone with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the Syria crisis intensifies.
“The two leaders discussed developing an exclusive strategic partnership between Russia and India,” the Kremlin said.
On Wednesday, Putin and Modi agreed to maintain contact in the future after India initiated the phone call as US President Donald Trump threatened to unleash missiles on Russia! It is believed that Donald Trump already strengthened its alliance with India regarding defence sector.
But, as you observe, Russia’s relationship with India appears to be stronger than most with Modi last month congratulating Putin on his re-election as Russian President. Expressing hope that under his leadership, the ‘Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership’ between India and Russia would continue to go from strength-to-strength.
Surprisingly, two days ago, it is reported that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Chair Sonia Gandhi has hailed the relationship between the two countries, saying the partnership has resulted in laying the foundations of India’s industrialisation.
She also appreciated Russia’s support of India during the Bangladesh War of Independence, adding Moscow, the country “stood like a rock” with India during New Delhi’s moment of grave crisis.
According to the reports of express.co, “The most recent phone call between Putin and Modi details of which haven’t been released yet could be seen as the formation of a closer alliance between the two countries as tensions between Russia and a number of other global nations continue to escalate to dangerous levels.”
The report said that “It could also be particularly relevant at a time when Russia and US draw closer to being on the brink of a potential war after Mr Putin threatened to shoot down US missiles fired at Syria’s forces in response to an alleged chemical attack on the country’s civilians at the weekend.”
Donald Trump is very serious about the issues of Russia. Some of his tweets said that the President of the US is unhappy with Russia’s moves regarding defence sector.
He tweeted, “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and smart! You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills people and enjoys it!”

It is reported that Mr.Trump followed this up shortly afterwards with another tweet, stating that the relationship between the US and Russia “is worse now than it ever has been, and that includes the Cold War.”
According to the reports, Senior Russian leaders have warned of retaliation if the US President orders missile strikes to go ahead. Both sides are looking to engage their allies in the bitterly-divided conflict stemming from the chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Douma yesterday.
It is believed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government has so far denied responsibility for the attack near Damascus that killed more than 70 people. Last October, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he was working towards better relations with India after he accused it of not putting pressure on North Korea to end its reckless war programme.
