The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) announced on Monday that Modi will travel to Sochi on May 21 for an informal summit to discuss wide-ranging issues with Putin.

In a surprise announcement, MEA said this afternoon it would be "an important occasion for the two leaders to exchange views on global matters in a broad and long-term perspective".

"Both leaders will discuss their respective national developmental priorities and bilateral matters", the release said. The summit, according to sources, was a last minute decision and only came together after an unnanounced visit to Moscow by NSA Ajit Doval and foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale.

According to reports, the decision to hold the summit was a last-minute move taken by Russian Federation following an unannounced visit to Moscow by India's national security advisor Ajit Doval and foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale, the Times of India reported.

Modi is also said to meet Putin at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit held in Qingdao in the month of June.

On next Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will embark on a trip to Russian Federation.

The current tensions around the Iranian nuclear deal followed Tuesday's announcement of the US President Donald Trump that the United States would pull out of the deal.

"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". The Prime Minister had met Putin in Russian Federation past year. "All this allows us to closely interact and coordinate our approaches in the United Nations and various military and political security mechanisms in the Asia-Pacific region", Lavrov had said.
