MOSCOW, December 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and India will on Friday ink agreements on Russian construction of two new nuclear reactors in Kudankulum and on the sale of additional 42 Su-30 combat jets to be assembled in India.
The signing will follow talks between Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Indian Prime Minister Mahmohan Singh.
Russia built two reactors at Kudankulum power plant and will build two other ones despite protests that delayed the startup because of safety fears. Both India and Russia assured the reactors have the highest safety level and Singh said an independent taskforce has been set up to respond to all lawful concerns of the local population.
Russian presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko said the parties will also sign a protocol to the 2000 agreement on the supply of additional 42 sets for the licensed assembly of Su-30MKI jets in India.
India is displaying interest in joining the Sakhalin-3 energy project.
Medvedev and Singh plan a meeting with businessmen of both countries. The Indian prime minister will also meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin “to discuss essential issues of bilateral relations.”
