India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has arrived in Moscow to take part in the 14th annual Russia-India summit.

Singh, making one of his last foreign trips before stepping down as prime minister, is expected to meet with President Vladimir Putin on October 21.

Talks are expected to focus on ways to strengthen trade ties, including Russian supplies of weapons and military hardware to India.

It's also anticipated that discussions will focus on Russia's involvement in the construction of the third and fourth units of India's Kudankulam nuclear power plant.

The two sides are also expected to discuss the regional impact of the withdrawal of Western forces from Afghanistan at the end of 2014.

Russia and India are partners, along with China, Brazil, and South Africa, in the BRICS group of emerging powers.
