After Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two-day visit to the Russia, S-400 air defence missile systems will be delivered to India in strict accordance with the schedule, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said on Sunday.
"The advance payment has been received and everything will be delivered in strict accordance with the schedule, within about 18-19 months," Borisov told state-owned broadcaster Rossiya-1.
It is to be noted that last month, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar visited Moscow to meet his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov to discuss ways to further advance bilateral cooperation.
India had signed a 5.43-billion US dollar deal with Russia for the purchase of five S-400 systems during the 19th India-Russia Annual Bilateral Summit in New Delhi on October 5 last year for long-term security needs.
