Major deals for defense co-operation between Moscow and New Delhi are likely to be signed during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to India, Russia’s ambassador to India, Alexander Kadakin said in an interview with Sputnik Saturday.

Putin is expected to visit India on December 10-11 for the 15th Annual India-Russia Summit.

“These will be important agreements in the field of our military exchanges and in our joint efforts which will correspond completely to the ‘Make in India’ appeal which [Indian] Prime Minister did,” Alexander was quoted as saying.

Russia’s efforts have been geared towards the with ‘Make in India’ appeal for “many, many decades now. You (India) produced our Sukhoi (aircraft) and other military equipment, also BrahMos (cruise missile),” he added.

Russia and India are currently experiencing “the overall uplift of the relations,” Kadakin said.

Russia and India are also collaborating in the development of India's Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA), a stealth design based on the developmental Sukhoi PAK FA.
