New Delhi, December 16

Prime Minister Narendra Modi could meet Chinese President Xi Jinping along with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the "near future", a Kremlin official has suggested.

The summit of Russia, India and China can be held in the near future, Russian Presidential Aide Yury Ushakov was quoted by Russian news agency Tass as saying.

Significantly, his observations came less than a fortnight after Putin made a rare overseas trip during the pandemic to hold consultations with PM Modi.

“The topic of cooperation in the Russia-India-China format was addressed,” the Kremlin’s spokesperson said while speaking on the virtual meeting between Putin and Xi. The leaders “agreed to continue exchanging opinions in this regard and to endeavour to hold the next summit within the RIC framework in the near future,” Ushakov added.

“Putin informed Xi Jinping about the visit to New Delhi on December 6 in this context,” he said.

The last meeting of the three leaders under the RIC format was in June 2019 on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka.
