The pacts were signed in diverse areas ranging from space and defence to finance, human space programme and tourism. The agreements were signed in the presence of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

The pact on civil nuclear cooperation envisages Russia building four additional reactors at the Kudankulam nuclear power plant in Tamil Nadu.

Medvedev, who arrived in New Delhi on Thursday night on a three-day visit, is the first foreign head of state to visit India after a brazen terror strike in Mumbai killed 172 people, including 22 foreigners.
