Jaishankar, Lavrov review India-Russia ties in talks in Goa


Benaulim (Goa): External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Thursday carried out a comprehensive review of India-Russia ‘special and privileged strategic partnership’ in the backdrop of Moscow’s increasingly frosty relations with the West over the Ukraine crisis.

The two foreign ministers held an hour-long meeting at a beach resort in Benaulim on the sidelines of a conclave of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

A Russian readout of Jaishankar-Lavrov talks said the two sides agreed to continue working towards building a “fair multipolar system of interstate relations”.

Lavrov arrived in Goa this morning on a two-day visit, a day after Russia accused Ukraine of attacking the Kremlin with drones in an unsuccessful attempt to kill President Vladimir Putin.
