Russian President Vladimir Putin has wrapped up his three-day state visit to India aimed at boosting trade and economic ties.
Before leaving for Turkey Sunday, Mr. Putin visited a software company and attended a military aircraft display in the high-tech city, Bangalore, dubbed the Silicon Valley of India.
He said Russia would set up an international institute for information technology in Moscow and proposed creating computer software with India and market it in developing countries.
Mr. Putin's visit was aimed at boosting technological, military and trade cooperation between the two countries, which have had close ties since the Cold War.
Earlier, he signed a joint declaration with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and supported India's bid to become a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council.
