#AceNewsServices – (Editor Choice) – September 19 – The tradition of close, friendly relations between Russia and India is largely inherited from Soviet-Indian relations, established after Indian independence.
The Soviet Union and India had common or coinciding positions on most of the important issues in world politics.
The Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 was the direct military confrontation between India and Pakistan during the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971. Indian, Bangladeshi and international sources consider the beginning of the war to have bee Operation Chengiz Khan, when Pakistan launched pre-emptive air strikes on 11 Indian airbases on 3 December 1971, leading to India’s entry into the war of independence in East Pakistan on the side of Bangladeshi nationalist forces, and the commencement of hostilities with West Pakistan.
As a result of India’s great victory, the newly independent state of Bangladesh was formed in place of East Pakistan.
This was an important stage in India’s history that to a significant degree laid the foundation for the transformation of the state into a great power.
At present, relations between Moscow and Delhi are based on the similarity of both countries’ approaches to the fundamental problems of global development.
