India, Russia ink accords on education, research

India and Russia on Monday signed four agreements on promoting Indian studies at four leading Russian institutes to coincide with Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's visit.

A statement issued by the Indian Embassy in Moscow said the agreements encompassed educational and research areas in Indian studies.

The Russian institutes will organise round-tables, seminars and lectures on India-related themes. In addition to bringing out publications on India, its history, culture and current issues, the institutes will promote the publication of Indian classical and contemporary works in Russian.

The agreements were signed by the Jawaharlal Nehru Cultural Centre and the Institute of Oriental Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences, the St Petersburg State University, the Kazan State University and the Far Eastern National University in Vladivostok.

The arrangement will encourage diversified and constructive dialogue, while strengthening academic and cultural ties between the two countries, the statement said.
