Putin: Russian state has never been involved in hacking

It was signed in St Petersburg during a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at an economic forum. The statement, combined with Putin saying that Russian Federation does not share a "tight" relationship with Pakistan, are expected to be a great diplomatic boost for India.

"From culture to security, our relations have been at par". He added that "we are patient, we know how to wait and we will wait".

He said the two leaders had made a decision to speed up the bilateral cooperation in all fields, for which an 'Action Plan' has been devised.

In 2001, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation was founded by the leaders of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Five other agreements were also signed between India and Russian Federation during Modi and Putin's meeting.

He described the talks as "constructive and fruitful which will strengthen friendship" between the two nations.

"I invite Russian companies to start joint ventures with Indian businesses".

Poupard says the attack's simplicity "means that we can imagine that it was a person who did this alone".

Around 12 agreements are expected to be signed between the two countries in a wide range of sectors, including science and technology, railways and cultural exchanges.

In response to a question about possible Russian interference in the German elections, which are scheduled to take place on September 24, he said he had no interest in influencing the result.

India and Russian Federation today agreed to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the aviation sector by setting up joint ventures in the field of manufacturing, as India is set to become the third largest global aviation market by 2020.

India's full membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization will considerably enhance the organization's capabilities to ensure peace and stability, achieve economic development and prosperity in Eurasia and the Asia-Pacific region, as well as improve the Organization's worldwide standing, ? the declaration added. (But) there is no other country in the world that we have such deep cooperation in delicate areas such as missiles, and we benefit with cooperation with India.
