India and Russia held major consultation in the realm of nuclear research away from the public eye ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's meeting with President Vladimir Putin in Brazil in July.
Nuclear energy was a key element at Modi-Putin talks. Both countries are discussing to set up Russian assisted 22 nuclear power projects in India.
Last month a scientific forum was held at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in the Russian city of Dubna with support from both the governments. The aim of the forum were to strengthen the existing co-operation further as well as explore the possibility of stronger ties between scientific research centers of India and JINR in the fields of fundamental theoretical and experimental physics.
