India has sealed the modalities of the S-400 anti-ballistic missile systems with Moscow for an approximate US $10.6 billion (INR 70,000 Crore).
The modalities, including the price of deal and number of systems to be acquired, were agreed upon in the meeting of India-Russia Inter Governmental Commission on Military-Technical-Cooperation (IRIGC-MTC) which concluded Monday in Moscow; with Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar co-chairing it jointly with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu, Indian newswire UNI reported quoting top sources in the Defense Ministry Monday.
