Primakov to Visit India

MOSCOW -- Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov will make an official visit to India from Dec. 20 to 23, government officials cited by Itar-Tass said Tuesday.

President Boris Yeltsin had planned to visit India next Sunday and Monday. The trip was put on indefinite hold but not canceled completely when he fell ill again with pneumonia last month.

The highlight of the visit was to be the formal extension of a bilateral military cooperation agreement until 2010.
