Obama administration officials initially refused to say if they thought Russian Federation was behind the attacks, before accusing Moscow for the first time earlier this month.
Even as Russian Federation walked the talk to prove that India remained its key ally, Rostec State Corporation, a defence and civil equipment manufacturer, on Saturday said that it had no plans to provide any kind of military equipment to Pakistan.
"We are conducting a comprehensive dialog on a wide scale of worldwide issues, in which Indian and Russian approaches are close to each other or coincide", said Putin.
The purchase will help India bolster its defenses along its borders with China and Pakistan.
Despite the absurdity of such threats, Russian Federation will take "precautionary measures", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said, adding that what's worrying is that such "unprecedented" threats are "being announced at the level of the US Vice President".
Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who is in charge of space and military industries, said two frigates could be built in India and two in Russia, RIA news agency reported. According to a TOI report, defence and nuclear cooperation will be among the highlights of their engagement and Putin may inaugurate the third and fourth units of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant.
Putin was seen as unlikely to weigh into the dispute between the rival neighbors, as Moscow also eyes closer defense ties with Islamabad. If India signs the deal, it would be the second customer of the prized missile system after China which had struck a Dollars 3 billion contract a year ago.
A day after India and Russia signed major defence deals of about Rs 43,000 crore on the sidelines of the ongoing BRICS Summit in Goa, Russia's ROSTEC Corp CEO, Sergey Chemezov said that his country has no plans of selling military-related equipment to Pakistan.
"In the next few months, a place will be allocated [for manufacture] and there will be investments", said Russian Trade and Industry Minister Denis Manturov.
He then warned the Russian journalists accompanying him at the summit that they are all of particular interest to the US National Security Agency (NSA).
China and India, the world's two most populous nations, are jockeying for regional influence in Asia.
As China will hold the rotating chair of BRICS in 2017, Beijing stands ready to work with Russian Federation and all other parties concerned to make a success of the ninth summit, he added.
BRICS was formed in 2011 with the aim of using its growing economic and political influence to challenge Western hegemony.
