Prime Minister Manmohan Singh arrived in Moscow on a two-day visit that will further strengthen strategic and economic ties between India and Russia.
Manmohan Singh will hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday on a wide range of bilateral and global issues including civil nuclear cooperation, intensification of business ties, the UN reforms, terrorism and the situation in Afghanistan and Central Asia.
The two countries are expected to sign a slew of agreements on resolving rupee-rouble trade issues, preventing drug trafficking and trans-national crime and space cooperation.
A bilateral agreement that will enable Russia to build four additional power reactors at the Kudankulam plant in Tamil Nadu may also be signed during the visit.
