Congratulations to Indian leadership on India’s Independence Day

August 15, 2013

Vladimir Putin sent a congratulatory message to President of India Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on India’s Independence Day.

The message reads, in part:

“India’s achievements in the economy, the social sector, science and technology are well-known around the world. Your nation rightly enjoys great respect in regional and global affairs, playing an active role in resolving the global community’s most urgent problems.

Russian-Indian relations, which are based on firm traditions of friendship and mutual respect, are developing in the spirit of a strategic partnership. I am confident that through our joint efforts, we will achieve further growth in all aspects of our bilateral ties and constructive cooperation in various multilateral formats. This clearly serves the vital interests of our nations.”
