Before the annual summit, a 2+2 dialogue will be held between the two countries at the level of defence and foreign ministers.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar will be holding discussion with their Russian Counterparts Sergey Shoigu and Sergey Lavrov.

PM Narendra Modi and President Putin will be discussing ways to strengthen strategic partnership between the two countries and will review prospects of bilateral relations.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi had said earlier, “The agenda for the dialogue will cover political and defence issues of mutual interest. The establishment of this new mechanism of two plus two dialogue is expected to further strengthen the strategic partnership between the two countries.”
