MOSCOW, January 16 (Sputnik) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will meet with his Indian and Chinese counterparts on February 2 in Beijing, a source inside Russia's Foreign Ministry told RIA Novosti on Friday.
"The negotiations in the Russia-India-China format are planned for February 2 in the Chinese capital," the unnamed source said.
Russia and India are considering bilateral trade in national currencies. India is Russia's largest partner in military-technical cooperation.
Russia's ties with China are also strong, the two countries having signed a number of important agreements in 2014, including a 30-year gas deal. Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a New Year's greeting to Chinese leader Xi Jinping that Russia was ready to continue implementing bilateral projects.
