"On S-400 I can say, the third part of supplies will be completed in the very near future." the ambassador said at the conference: "Next Steps in India-Russia Strategic Partnership" dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the friendship treaty signed between the two countries.
The Ambassador stressed, "both sides have been committed to completion of the whole of the contract. We certainly will do that. Nothing prevents that," Alipov said.
