“Visited the Atom Pavilion with President Putin. Energy is an important pillar of cooperation between India and Russia and we are eager to further cement ties in this sector,” Modi posted on his official X platform along with the photographs from the visit.

“Prime Minister Modi was also shown the ‘Atomic Symphony’ – a permanent working model of the VVER-1000 reactor, which is the heart of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) in India,” a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs said.

Prime Minister Modi is here to hold the 22nd India-Russia annual summit with President Putin. Prime Minister Modi and President Putin visited the All Russian Exhibition Centre, VDNKh, ahead of the summit talks.

“At the Pavilion, the Prime Minister also interacted with a group of Indian and Russian students. He encouraged them to look at future possibilities in the realm of science and technology, which could be harnessed for the benefit of future generations and for the planet,” the MEA statement said.

“Cooperation in peaceful uses of nuclear technology is an important pillar of the multifaceted cooperation between India & Russia,” the MEA posted on X soon after the visit.

Earlier, Prime Minister Modi paid tribute at the ‘Tomb of the Unknown Soldier’ here and also laid a wreath at the Tomb.
