Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has raised with Russia the issue of delay in Admiral Gorshkov aircraft carrier’s delivery to the Indian Navy, saying it was important for India that the ship arrives in time.

The Gorshkov issue was raised by the Prime Minister during the 12th Indo-Russian Summit talks with President Dmitry Medvedev at the Kremlin here on Friday.

Foreign secretary Ranjan Mathai told newsmen that both India and Russia were clear that they would take necessary action to ensure there was 'no slippages' in the delivery of the aircraft carrier, which will be rechristened ‘INS Vikramaditya’. Mathai said Singh told Medvedev that “it is very important for us (India) that the ship arrives in time.”
