India and Russia are set to sign over a dozen agreements, including a key pact on a fifth generation fighter aircraft and on expanding civil nuclear cooperation, during Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s two-day visit here next week.

Medvedev touches down here with a large business delegation on Monday night for an annual summit with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Manmohan Singh and Medvedev on Tuesday will discuss a wide range of bilateral and international issues, including the expansion of civil nuclear cooperation, economic ties and terrorism. He will also go to Mumbai and Agra.

Around 12-14 agreements will be signed during the visit, Russian ambassador Alexander Kadakin told reporters here on Friday. The envoy said the much-awaited deal on the joint production of the cutting edge jet fighter will be based on a Sukhoi design.

An agreement on Russia building more nuclear reactors in India will also be signed, the envoy said.
