Russian President Dmitry Medvedev arrived in New Delhi early Tuesday morning on a two-day visit during which the two sides are expected to sign over a dozen agreements, including a key pact on Moscow building more nuclear reactors in India.

Manmohan Singh and Medvedev will discuss a wide range of bilateral and international issues, including the expansion of civil nuclear cooperation, the intensification of bilateral economic ties, global terrorism and the international financial crisis.

The two sides are set to sign over 15 agreements, including key pacts on jointly producing a multi-billion dollar fifth generation jet fighter and Moscow's plans to build more nuclear reactors in India after the leaders of the two sides hold talks in New Delhi on Tuesday.

The Russian leader will go to Agra and Mumbai on Wednesday.

In Mumbai, Medvedev will stay at The Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel, one of the main targets of Nov 26-29, 2008 terror attack, and pay homage to victims of the carnage.

He will also go to Film City, where he will interact with Bollywood stars.
