Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a phone conversation and discussed important issues of bilateral and international agendas, including joint efforts in the fight against terrorism, the Kremlin said Monday (January 7).

The heads of state noted the traditional friendship and a "particularly privileged strategic partnership" between Russia and India that continue to develop dynamically, a Kremlin statement said.

They confirmed the "mutual spirit" of the two countries to increase cooperation in the fight against international terrorism and seek solutions to other pressing world problems.

Putin wished Modi success in the forthcoming parliamentary elections in India and invited him to attend the Eastern Economic Forum in the Russian city of Vladivostok in September 2019, the Kremlin said.
