Medvedev will visit New Delhi between December 4 and December 6 for the annual Indo-Russia summit and the formal conclusion of the 'Year of Russia' [Images] in India, the Kremlin announced today.
Local experts underscore that Medvedev's maiden India visit, which comes soon after the Mumbai terror attacks [Images] that claimed 183 lives, should be seen as an expression of solidarity with the people and leadership of India.
