Prime Minister Modi thanked President Putin and noted that the prompt Russian support to India was a symbol of our enduring partnership.

The leaders noted that the Russian vaccine will be manufactured in India for use in India, Russia and third countries.

Both leaders attached importance to further deepening bilateral cooperation in various sectors in the spirit of our special and privileged partnership.

India and Russia are going nowhere. Even in the worst of cross faction wars, they will not harm each other as the benefits outweigh hostilities. Both countries are the only 2 powers that don't have a single geopolitical conflict in any region of the world. Both don't share any region of influence, and no borders.

US is an empire and is not going to be reliable as we can see.

China is going to remain our nemesis till CCP exists.

Brazil is too busy firefighting its economy & is too far away for any meaningful alignment of geopolitical interests.

Japan will only do what the US will order it to do - the deep state controls them too much.

South Korea is neutral but is too tiny and once again under US control.

France is a solid strategic partner who has stood firm with us, but given the havoc in the EU and Germany's torn affections for USA and China, would compel it to focus in EU first.

That really leaves Russia as a viable powerful long-term partner.

Interesting conversation
Irrespective of what happens between India-China-Russia now, the Russians will eventually come back into the Western/Indian fold eventually when the Chinese become too powerful and the demographics of Siberia favor China. It is expected that by the end of this decade, ethnic Chinese will be a majority in Siberia, and China hasn't forgotten the Boxer Rebellion treaty, where it believes it's century of Humiliation started. Russia took Siberia then, and China has every intention of reversing that. This was seen during the Sino-Soviet split 60 years back, and more recently by prominent Chinese Politburo members and journalists of the State reporting that Vladivostok was originally called Haishenwai and was a part of China. The China-Russia relationship is untenable, just like the India-Bald Eagle one is.
