December 04, 2007 23:21 IST
A day after Naval Chief Admiral Suresh Mehta made some harsh comments against Russia [Images], Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon on Tuesday said relations with Moscow [Images] were excellent and any issue between the two countries can be sorted out.
"We have excellent relations with Russia. If there are any issues, we can sort them out," Menon told reporters in New Delhi.
He was asked about the nature of Indo-Russian relations after Admiral Mehta said on Monday that delay in the implementation of defence deals needed a review of bilateral ties.
Mehta, while lamenting the dilly dallying approach of Russia, told reporters that in view of this situation, "We need to think where our relations are going".
The bilateral relations between India and Russia, traditionally warm, have recently witnessed a chill.
