MOSCOW, October 10 (RIA Novosti) — India and Russia will extend their strategic and military partnership when they sign a new military cooperation agreement in December, an Indian daily said on Saturday.

According to The Times of India, a 10-year deal will be signed in the course of a meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow.

It said the groundwork for the agreement will be laid when Defense Minister A.K. Antony visits Moscow next week for talks with his Russian counterpart Anatoly Serdyukov.

The current cooperation program comprises about 200 joint projects, including the modernization of the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier (formerly the Admiral Gorshkov) for the Indian navy, the transfer of technology for the licensed assembly of T-90 tanks in India, the production of BrahMos missiles and the purchase of Smerch MLRS by India.
