  • This is part of their efforts to widen maritime cooperation and explore new transport corridors like the Northern Sea Route (NSR) and the Eastern Maritime Corridor (EMC) between Vladivostok and Chennai.
  • The NSR is a shipping route that connects the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean along the northern coast of Russia. It offers a shorter and cheaper alternative to the traditional routes through the Suez Canal or the Panama Canal.
  • The NSR is expected to become more accessible due to the melting of Arctic ice caused by climate change.
  • The EMC is a proposed maritime corridor that will link India’s east coast with Russia’s far east region.
  • It will facilitate trade and transportation of commodities such as coking coal, oil, and liquefied natural gas. The EMC will also enhance India’s strategic presence in the Indo-Pacific region.
