Seeking to take forward the strategic partnership to new heights, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today made it clear that India's relations with third countries will never be at the cost of "time-tested ties" with Russia.

After a one-on-one meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the Kremlin which he described as "very productive", Singh said, "a stronger Russia is important for world peace."

Both India and Russia have a joint role to play to deal with regional and international issues, including steps for revival of global economy, terrorism and reforms of international institutions, Singh said in his opening remarks before the two sides got into delegation-level talks.
