S-400 air defence system The focus of the summit will be an agreement on the S-400 air defence missile system.

Russian Federation and India also plan signing more than 20 documents at the end of the talks the Putin is going to have with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a visit to New Delhi on October 4-5, Ushakov told reporters.

Vladimir Putin heads to India for a two-day visit, during which he will meet PM Narendra Modi. It came in the form of a reference made by a senior U.S. administration official to the Chabahar Port being jointly developed by India, Iran and Afghanistan. India wants to procure the long-range missile systems to tighten its air defence mechanism, particularly along the almost 4,000-km-long Sino-India border.

"The US response will be evident by November 5, when both the trade with Russian Federation and the hydrocarbon imports from Iran will come to a tipping point". The US is now India's second biggest arms supplier.

While New Delhi is cozying up to Moscow for the mega-billion defence deals, the looming United States sanctions can't be overlooked.

Moscow has been negotiating to sell the S-400 long-range surface-to-air missiles to India for months. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

"Also India's Air Force's strength has weakened owing to acquisition problems".

The Russian S-400s are now the best complexes in their class. India has "healthy pragmatism", and it doesn't want "to somehow annoy" Washington by purchasing them, Aleksey Martynov, a director of the International Institute of the Newly Established States group, told RT.

The Putin-Modi meeting will also be closely watched by two of the biggest powers - the USA and China.

Briefing reporters here after the first India-US 2+2 dialogue last month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said that he had told the Indians "consistently that on November 4 the sanctions will be enforced, and that we will consider waivers where appropriate".

India is also collaborating with Russian Federation in setting up Bangladesh's first nuclear plant at Rooppur.

In response, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US was terminating the Treaty of Amity with Iran - a 1955 agreement to improve economic relations between the two countries.

Annual Russia-India trade has slipped below $10bn since 2014, as Modi cultivated closer diplomatic and economic ties with Washington, while Russia has courted Pakistan and China.

On October 05, the Russian President will hold delegation level talks with Prime Minister Modi at the Hyderabad House at around 11:30 AM. They also met in Sochi this year.

He called Russia's military relationship with India "traditional and long-standing".
