India, Russia agree to develop six nuclear power plant projects

India and Russia signed a pact to develop six nuclear power projects in India, following summit talks between their leaders in New Delhi.Speaking at the joint news conference with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Russian President Vladimir Putin said according to the agreement Russia planned to build 12 power units in the next 20 years in India.During Putin’s ongoing visit to New Delhi for an annual summit with Indian prime minister, the two countries also signed eight agreements covering railways, nuclear energy and space, including cooperation on India’s plan to mount a manned space mission by 2022.

Earlier on Friday, the two sides also sealed more than $5 billion deal according to which India will buy S-400 surface to air missile systems giving its military the ability to shoot down aircraft and missiles at unprecedented ranges.For all the warm words, ties with Moscow are a lot less central to Delhi than they were during the Cold War years, as India has diversified arms purchases, closing $15 billion of deals with the United States over the last decade.
