Prime Minister Narendra Modi today left for France after wrapping up his Russia visit during which he held talks with President Vladimir Putin and attended an international economic forum here. “Thank you Russia. This eventful visit witnessed several programmes and fruitful meetings. It will further boost India-Russia friendship,” Prime Minister Modi tweeted before leaving for France.
During his Russia visit, Modi and Putin held a summit, and signed several agreements including a critical one to build two more reactors of a nuclear plant in Tamil Nadu with Russia’s help.
Earlier today, Modi attended the St Petersburg International Economic Forum where he made a strong pitch to global businesses for investing in India, saying its market of 120 crore people provides vast opportunities from agriculture to defense, while being protected by political stability and a “vibrant” judicial system.
