India Leader's Visit

MOSCOW -- President Boris Yeltsin told Indian Defense Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday he saw no problems in Russia's relations with India, one of its main arms customers.

An Indian Embassy official said the prime task of Yadav's visit was to review a 1994 long-term program on military and technical cooperation, although no deals were likely to be signed during the trip.

Yadav, accompanied by a team of high-ranking government officials, met Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev on Monday. He will visit several military bases in the Moscow and St. Petersburg regions during a five-day visit.
