The United States, Japan, India, and Australia are united in our vision for a free and open, inclusive and healthy Indo-Pacific region. Learn more about the outcomes from today's historic Quad Summit here: go.usa.gov/xsvKn.

Lavrov highly experienced but blunt. Has always criticised Indo/Pacific/Quad. Russia geopolitically balancing amreeki with China ties & Bharat now balancing against China with quad ties. Within ric ,brics , sco we tried synergies with China under Russian eyes.

Result - Ladakh.

The real focus for BHARAT has to be rapid economic growth to close the economic gap with the ccp. In the final analysis, one can only rely on one's own strength. There are no super-power umbrellas where countries can take solace in without compromising their sovereignty. Gotta pull our own weight in the long run. Rawat ji says border infra will overlap chinese within next 3-4 years.

The highlights of Press statements made by S Jaishankar and Lavrov were:
  • Visit of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to the Republic of India for the Annual Summit later this year.
  • International North-South Transport Corridor and the Chennai-Vladivostok Eastern Maritime Corridor.
  • Particular attention was paid to such areas as energy, including nuclear, peaceful exploration of outer space, transport and infrastructure projects, including in the Far East and the Arctic region.
  • In meeting the Covid challenge, pharmaceutical collaboration has become more serious and Sputnik V Russian vaccine was under discussion for production in India.
  • Issues on which India is chairing UNSC committees came up in some detail. India has also taken over the Chair of BRICS and RIC from Russia for this year. The common membership of the G-20, ASEAN-led forums, SCO and CICA were part of the conversation.
  • The state and prospects of bilateral military-technical cooperation, including the joint production of modern types of weapons in India. In this strategically important area, Russia remains New Delhi’s leading external counterparty as per Lavrov.
  • Both leaders examined such issues as a peaceful settlement in Afghanistan, the Syrian crisis, the situation around the Iranian nuclear program, the situation in Myanmar. For India, what happens in Afghanistan impacts its security directly. Dr Jaishankar shared Indian approach that a durable peace there would require harmonising interests of all, both within and around that country. The peace process must be based on foundational principles to which we all subscribe.
  • India shared its view-point on the Indo-Pacific. As Prime Minister pointed out, contemporary challenges require countries to work together in new and different ways. Such cooperation also reflects the multi-polar and rebalanced character of global politics. India is strongly committed to ASEAN centrality and this is underlined by the Indo-Pacific Oceans. Answering a qustion, Russian Foreign Minister mentioned “There is also talk of continuing to promote projects to create a “Middle East NATO”, and recently there has been even talk of an “Asian NATO”. Today we exchanged views on this matter. Our Indian friends and I have a common position that this will be counterproductive.
