NEW DELHI (Agencies) - Russia and India on Tuesday inked 30 pacts in several key areas such as civil nuclear cooperation and defence, including development of Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) to augment countrys military capabilities and pledged to deepen cooperation on counter-terrorism and regional security. Russia however also joined India in demanding from Pakistan expeditious punishment to all those involved in the Mumbai attacks with President Dmitry Medvedev asserting that a modern and civilised state cannot hide terrorists and should extradite them if it is interested in cooperating in the fight against terrorism. According to a joint statement, Medvedev held wide-ranging talks with Manmohan during which both sides strongly condemned those who support terrorism noting that states that aid, abet or shelter terrorists are as guilty of acts of terrorism as their actual perpetrators, a joint statement said. The agreements surrounded talks in New Delhi between visiting Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Indian Premier Manmohan Singh, during which both sides set a target of doubling bilateral trade to $20 billion by 2015. They also signed a contract envisaging the joint design and development of Fifth-Generation Fighter Aircraft with stealth capabilities. Although no figures were mentioned, experts say the final fighter deal could be worth close to $30b, with India planning to induct up to 300 of the aircraft into its air force. The two leaders also discussed plans for Russia to build two additional generating units at a nuclear power plant in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, where it is already setting up two reactors. Hailing what he described as a special and privileged strategic partnership, Manmohan said Russia was a time-tested friend ... that has stood by us in our times of need in the past. Medvedev arrived in India on Tuesday, seeking to fend off growing international competition for lucrative Indian defence contracts that were once monopolised by Moscow. Medvedev was also expected to use his visit to lobby India to select Russian-made MiG-35s for a 12-billion-dollar contract for 126 fighter jets. In a remark that will play well with his hosts, Medvedev voiced Moscows support for India as a deserving and strong candidate for a permanent seat in an expanded UN Security Council. The joint statement said the two sides had also signed a deal for Russia to supply missiles to the Indian army. Terrorists are criminals ... they should be extradited to be punished. Those who hide terrorists conceal criminals, Medvedev said at a joint news conference with Manmohan when asked how Russia looked at safe havens of terror operations in the region and how it can expand cooperation with India in dealing with this menace. Reaffirming the need for all states to combine efforts to vanquish this evil, the two sides agreed that all terrorist networks must be defeated. They called upon Pakistan to expeditiously bring all the perpetrators, authors and accomplices of the November 2008 Mumbai attacks to justice, the statement said. Kaswar Klasra from Islamabad adds: Pakistan said on Tuesday that Russia-India nuclear deal may spark imbalance in the region and that it would not remain oblivious to its defence. In a reaction to Russia-India nuclear deal according to which Russia agreed to build up to 16 nuclear reactors for power stations in India, Foreign Office said Pakistan was highly concerned in connection with this deal. According to reports emanating from India, Russia became the latest country to strike a civil nuclear deal with energy-hungry India when it agreed to supply reactors to India. The contribution of nuclear energy in India is forecast to rise from 4,000MW to as much as 470,000MW over the next 40 years, it is believed. The Russian deal follows a civil nuclear agreement with the US at the end of last year that helped clear the way for India to buy atomic power plants, technology and fuel from the nuclear club of nations. The Russia-India deal has not only raised many eyebrows in Pakistan but also it has raised several questions among many in the world as well. It is pertinent to mention here that Indias claim that it has a spotless record when it comes to nuclear proliferation was questioned by a leading nuclear watchdog group two years back in 2008. Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) believed in 2008 that important questions remain about the adequacy and implementation of Indias export control and nuclear classification procedures. In addition, Indias illicit procurement of dual-use nuclear-related items for its un-safeguarded nuclear programme belies its commitment to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). In a new report, published in 2008, ISIS said the 45-member NSG, while giving a green light to the Indo-US nuclear agreement, took note of steps that India has voluntarily taken to institute a national export control system, capable of effectively controlling transfers of multilaterally controlled nuclear-related material, equipment and technology. The ISIS further stated at that time that in assessing Indias nuclear procurement practices, it found several incidents where India conducted illicit nuclear trade and leaked sensitive nuclear information. The ISIS in its report strongly recommended that questions about the past and current practices must be clarified. It is still a question whether the questions regarding past and current practices would be clarified or not before Russia-India nuclear deal. However, Pakistan was aiming at question the said deal with NSG, informed the sources on Tuesday.
