Updated on

Russian President Vladimir Putin will seek to bolster energy ties with India on a visit next month, his latest move to expand trade links with Asian nations to counter sanctions from the U.S. and its allies.

Oil & Natural Gas Corp., India’s biggest energy explorer, is likely to sign initial agreements during the trip with Moscow-based OAO Rosneft to study two Russian oil and gas fields, Chairman Dinesh Kumar Sarraf said by phone yesterday. Putin is set to arrive in New Delhi on Dec. 11 for meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
