new Delhi:

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will demand the delivery of the S-400 missile defense system to India at the earliest during the Russian tour. This demand for early supply from India is being made at a time when its dispute with China is on the border. Actually, India was supposed to get the S400 missile defense system by December 2021 but due to Kovid-19, its delivery is being delayed. However, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will ask Russia to deliver this missile defense system during his visit soon. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will also ask Russia to deliver the spare parts and other supplies of its existing fighter jets at the earliest. India has already paid a large amount to Russia for the purchase of s-400 missile defense system. In Russia, Rajnath Singh will not meet any political official in China.
