It would be Modis second informal summit in as many months as he held talks with Chinese President Xi Jingpin in Chinas Wuhan in a similar format last month. The two leaders will also be present at the G-20 meeting in Argentina in November.

Sources said President Putin will be in India later this year for the annual summit.

India would like to highlight that it maintains strategic autonomy in foreign policy and has special ties with Moscow.

"The summit meeting of Indian Prime Minister in China and now with Russian Federation should also be looked at from the point of view that world powers are breaking off from American leadership due to the undoing of the Obama-era global commitments by the US".

This reaffirmation was required as there had been a rising narrative within India, influenced by western media, that Russian Federation was too economically weak to be a credible worldwide partner, according to some observers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Russian Federation on May 21 for an informal summit with Vladimir Putin, said the Ministry of External Affairs on Monday.

An External Affairs Ministry release said Modi's visit to Russian Federation will be an important occasion for him and Putin to exchange views on worldwide matters in a broad and long-term perspective in order to further strengthen the special and privileged strategic partnership.

Analysts view the upcoming visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Russian Federation soon after concluding an informal meet with the Chinese President, as an indication of world powers teaming up against the USA following President Trump's gradual undoing of global commitments made by his predecessor. Last week, just after USA withdrew from JCPOA, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval visited Moscow for consultations. All major powers, including the UK, France, Germany, Russia and China, have said that they will fulfill the commitments under the deal, known as JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action).

India is understood to have conveyed to Moscow its strong support given the current geopolitical situation.

MEA said that both the leaders will discuss their respective national developmental priorities and bilateral matters. I'm speaking of the Russia-India-China (RIC) format, BRICS, and now the SCO, of which India became a fullfledged member a year ago.

"Our foreign policy coordination is making steady progress as part of regular bilateral contacts between the relevant agencies, as well as in the context of our partnership promotion in multilateral formats".
