[b]New Delhi, 05 December ( [/b]Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh flew into Moscow on Sunday for his annual summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

There are no bilateral disputes or discords and the visit will focus on increased cooperation in the field of war against terrorism, defence and energy issues.

The Singh delegation is staying at Hotel Baltschug Kempinski, which is located opposite the Kremlin across the Moskva River.

Before leaving for Moscow, Prime Minister told Indian media here that he would explore with President Vladimir Putin ways to enhance trade and investments besides strengthening cooperation in the energy sector.

This will be their fourth meeting this year.

It was exactly 50 years ago India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru paid his landmark visit to the then USSR and set the two nations on the path to an enduring strategic partnership.

'My mission', Manmohan Singh said, 'is to work with our Russian friends to reinforce the already strong framework of this important relationship'.

He said the India-Russia relationship is an important factor in the creation of a secure and stable multipolar world.
