India, Russia put off meet by two months to resolve issues
India and Russia have postponed their high-level engagement planned for November 1, 2012 by almost two months in order to reach conformity on some debatable military and civil issues.
What are the main issues?
- Stalemate over liability provisions for units three and four of the Kudankulam power project
- Controversy over the cancellation of 2G spectrum licences, which impacted Sistema Shyam TeleServices Limited, a subsidiary of Russia’s AFK Sistema group.
- Russia has not yet cleared how much time it will take to eliminate major deficiencies that came out during the recent sea trials of INS Vikramaditya.
