He said Russian-Indian relations are based on long-standing traditions of friendship and mutual respect and have attained the level of special and privileged strategic partnership.

Putin said Russia attaches great importance to the launch of procedure for India’s joining the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, “which opens up new vistas for broader and productive cooperation between our nations”.

He recalled his meetings with Modi in Ufa, Russia, in early July and in New Delhi in last December.

“It is with warm feelings that I recall our meetings in Russia and India, substantive and constructive negotiations. I am confident that by joint efforts we will ensure further growth of the whole gamut of bilateral ties and partnership interaction in addressing the burning issues of regional and global agenda. This meets the fundamental interests of our nations and goes in line with providing international stability and security”, he said, according to the Russian embassy here.

TikTok remained unavailable for download on both Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store on Thursday – a day after the Madras High Court’s Madurai Bench lifted the ban on the short video-sharing app.

Sources in the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology said that official communication to the technology companies would be made after it receives the court directive.

The IT ministry had earlier asked Google and Apple to block the app following the Supreme Court’s refusal to stay the Madras HC’s call for ban on the app on April 3.

Deciding the case filed by advocate Muthukumar, the Madurai Bench on Wednesday vacated its interim order banning the app, subject to conditions that pornographic videos will not be uploaded on it, failing which contempt of court proceedings would begin.

Owned by Chinese company ByteDance, TikTok claims to have over 120 million monthly active users in India.

A search for the app on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store on Thursday did not yield any result.

While Google and Apple refused to share any official statement, the companies would be able to reinstate the app only when they receive an official directive revoking the ban.
