"India and Russia◉ should work together on innovative new technologies. The younger generation should take the lead," Putin said.
According to Murthy, "India and Russia◉ share several common values and have successfully leveraged each other's strengths across various industry sectors.
There are, however, avenues that remain unexplored. In order to progress further, we must focus on greater co-operation between the two nations. This calls for open-mindedness and a careful analysis of the economic benefits for both the countries.
Later, the Russian President was treated to a flying display of aircraft, designed and developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd before leaving for Moscow on the conclusion of his 3-day visit to India.
Putin witnessed the 25-minute flying display, including aerobatics by the Light◉ Combat Aircraft, Advanced Light◉ Helicopter and the Intermediate Jet◉ Trainer.
According to HAL chairman A K Baweja, Putin was impressed by the design and production capabilities of HAL after going around the static and flying display of these aircraft.
"We also had the honour of showing the Su-30 MKI (Sukhoi), the first Russian fighter jet◉ indigenously built by our Nashik◉ complex and handed over to the Indian◉ Air Force◉ last week," Baweja said.
Baweja added that Putin showed keen interest in knowing more about the Indo-Russian defence cooperation, especially in the aviation sector.
