PM in Moscow for India-Russia summit

world Updated: Dec 15, 2011 19:38 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh arrived in Moscow on Thursday on a three-day visit for a bilateral summit with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at which the two sides will discuss proposals to ramp up their strategic relations and also sign agreements in the fields of defence, health and science technology.

Manmohan Singh is also slated to meet Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Friday afternoon after the summit.

During the meetings, the two sides are likely to discuss their civil nuclear cooperation, in particular the setting up of units III and IV of the Kudankulam nuclear plant in Tamil Nadu with Russian.

The prime minister's visit comes at a time when Russia is rocked by political unrest and public protests over allegations of electoral fraud during the recently-held parliamentary elections.
