The informal summit is significant given the upcoming U.S. sanctions not just against Russian Federation under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, but also Iran following President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear accord with Tehran.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold an "informal summit" with Russian President Vladimr Putin in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on May 21 during which he would discuss further strengthening the Privileged Strategic Partnership between the two countries and exchange views on regional and global developments.

This informal summit will be held in the Russian city of Sochi, and will be unstructured, without any set agenda.
