    Background: Soviet Defence Minister Dimitri Ustinov arrived in India on Tuesday (16 March) for a five day visit. He met Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Defence Minister Ramaswani Yenkataraman and gave an assurance of continued Soviet military aid. After talks in Delhi he flew to Bombay to inspect India's naval dockyard there. He was received by Rear Admiral J.G. Nadkarni and Vice Admiral M.P. Avati. The Soviet defence minister paid a visit to the Indian cruiser Rajput, which was acquired from the Soviet Union two years ago. He told commanders Soviet support to India in all matters would continue. Mr. Ustinov also visited a number of Indian historical buildings, including Bombay's famous monument, the Gateway to India. The Soviet Union is traditionally India's largest supplier of arms, although no details of shipments were announced during this visit.
