India, Russia to sign five deals
Moscow, Oct 21: As Prime Minister Manmohan Singh arrived in Moscow on Monday, India and Russia are likely to sign five deals but clouds of uncertainty hover around Kundankulam N-pact.

The pact, that will set up the third and fourth unit of Tamil Nadu's Kundakulam nuclear power plant will not be ready on time after Russia had apprehensions over the impact that the unlimited liability law would have on them.

India and Russia will sign five agreements at the Indo Russian Annual Summit, that will strenghten the strategic partnership between the two countries.

Both countries are also likely to lookout at the possibility of setting up a gas pipeline from Russia and India, a project prompted by Russian fears of losing its market in Europe.
