Russian President Vladimir Putin has vowed to strengthen ties with BRICS partners, India and Brazil.

Putin was addressing eighteen ambassadors to the Russian Federation after receiving their letters of credence this week.

He hailed Indo-Russian ties calling New Delhi as its “truly strategic partner” while welcoming the new Indian ambassador to Russia, P.S. Raghavan.

“Cooperation with India – our truly strategic partner – is a priority of Russia’s foreign policy.  We maintain a dynamic and constructive dialogue based on coinciding long-term interests, mutual sympathy and sincere trust,” Putin told the gathering at the Kremlin.

“Negotiations in Moscow with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh have resulted in the signing of joint programmes in science, biotechnology and innovation.  We have set specific plans to further develop our defence cooperation,” he added.

Singh had said in a visit to Moscow last year that “Russia stood by India when friends were few”.

India and Russia share traditionally close ties marked by deepening cooperation in defence and space collaborations. India is also one of the top buyers of Russian weapons.

Putin also praised relations with Russia’s South American trading partner, as Moscow and Brasilia lay the groundwork for more intensive future cooperation.

“We are actively cooperating within the G20 and BRICS and hold similar views on numerous issues on the current international agenda,” Putin told the new Brazilian ambassador Antonio Jose Vallim Guerreiro.

“We have established a beneficial and confidential dialogue with President Dilma Rousseff and the Government of Brazil,” said Putin adding Russia and Brazil will work to broaden investment opportunities in sectors as diverse as industry, infrastructure, energy and aerospace.

Brazil is in the final stages of signing a $1 billion anti-aircraft missile batteries deal with Russia.

Brazilian Defence Minister Celso Amorim said last October that defence cooperation between the two BRICS members could “counterbalance” other options, in a reference to Brazil’s traditional arms suppliers such as the United States.

A Brazilian Defence Ministry statement also said Brazil would like to partner with Russia in cyber-defence as the nation is boosting up internet security after reports of massive electronic surveillance by the US and its allies surfaced recently.

    Simply incredible the incompetence of this Brazilian government!
    The previous president Luiz Inacio had done a relatively nice work regarding the local economy and foreign trade with the world!
    The Dilma’s turn was a disaster! She has squandered whatsoever was left of the surplus and now the country is in a huge dire straits! Politicians are stealing from the country’s known as MENSALAO(people’ help aid program) and enriching themselves w/o regard for the nation! The ex-president Sarney went and visited thief scoundrel of this program(scoundrel Genuino) and claimed as his friend! A total shame proven with videos by the media and audio! Now China since a few years back, had given lots of investment money for infra-structure in 2007 and yet must ask what has Brazil done with the money and the answer is barely nothing! These scoundrels caught in this program were caught so because of the infra-structure projects’ money disappearance and yet to be done and completed because BRICS is coming to Brazil in March 2014 and the great leaders wilt listen to Dilma’s non-sense and obviously questions wilt arise of her ability of managing the country! This deal of 1 BLN USD arms purchase goes against her idea of last year’s on May 2013 purchasing 32 obsolete German tanks retrofitted for ww2 air raid! This truly shows her lack of respect and squandering attitude of the economy in the pits at this time such as -0.5% in the last quarter of 2013…
    Now Dilma is trying to seize the election via the powerful Soviet Union since her party is socialist(PT[worker’s party]) and continuing with her non-senses! She has already proven her inability! This country of Brazil is plagued with parties, sex and futebol matches… There are only 11 nations speaking Portuguese and none of them with stable economical platform!
    So, regarding The Soviets and the purchase of these weapons, shows the German Gepards purchased last May a huge WHITE ELEPHANT!
    May be they should paint them with PINK COLOR and place them on her front yard so she reminds herself of her inability as a manager!
    Brazil’s Petrobras is a 100% bankrupt company for years! For every USD100.00 invested the company only can generate back USD23.00 and for a loooooonnnngggg time the Brazilian government has printed money from the back door and injected in this monstrous company!
    If the Soviets are ready for helping this country, then the president must be replaced on the next election in October! The measuring stick of this situation is March 2014 when the BRICS leaders are gathered for a powerful reunion of economical topics! Simply listen and observe her(Dilma’s) non-senses while her talk! It wilt be purely junk and blunt lies! It can not remain as it is! The inflation is rising sharply and the economical power of the Brazilian people is diminishing rapidly!
    The Brazilian government has raised inferno regarding the NSA spying program but, apart from reading the emails, what has USA done harmful? Thus far NOTHING! Dilma has started a novel of her own so her incompetence then could be, in her mind, justified!
    Brazil must have new jobs and more industry such as during 1958 and 1959 during the government of Juscelino Kubitschek know as JK! Industry and infra-structure were the KINGS of the time so to speak! Today the government is a club of friends and Brazil is not serious but party goers awaiting for another night of dissipation and drink!
    Truly the reality must be explained so true plans of recovery can be established!
