Indian Navy may rent another nuclear submarine from Russia. It goes about a Project 971 (codenamed Pike-B) sub, Indian media outlets report.
The news was announced by the head of the Indian Defense Minister, Manohar Parrikar, as he was communicating with journalists after Putin's visit to India.
The Indian Navy already has a Russian-made nuclear submarine, Project 971 Nerpa. The sub was passed into service at the Indian Navy two years ago for the period of ten years.
"The tests of the missile with characteristics prohibited under the Treaty took place only 16 days after Washington completed the denunciation of the said Treaty. It is obvious that it was not improvisation," Putin said
