Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will pay a visit to New Delhi on December 11 for talks with his Indian and Chinese counterparts Sushma Swaraj and Wang Yi, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.

After the weeks of confrontation on the wind-swept Doklam plateau this year, the two sides agreed to an "expeditious disengagement" of troops about a week before Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in an effort to mend ties at a summit in China in September.
