Close on the heels of his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in an informal setting in Wuhan in April, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to visit Russian Federation on 21 May for an informal summit with President Vladimir Putin at the beach resort of Sochi.
The MEA said the meeting would see the two leaders exchange their views on matters of global importance "in a broad and long-term perspective with the objective" to strengthen India and Russia's "special and privileged strategic partnership". "Both leaders will also discuss their respective national developmental priorities and bilateral matters", added the statement.
The summit, according to sources, was a last minute decision and only came together after an unnanounced visit to Moscow by NSA Ajit Doval and foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale. The meeting comes just weeks after Modi-Jinping two-day meet held at Wuang in China. The summit will take place in the Russian resort city of Sochi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will become the first head of state to travel to Russian Federation since President Vladimir Putin took the oath of office for a fourth term last week. Last month, Putin and Modi had also spoken on phone.
The Modi-Putin summit will be followed swiftly by Modi travelling to Indonesia and Singapore, and then China for the SCO summit.
Sources said that the India-Russia informal summit will not supplant the annual summit, which will be held in India later this year.
