Russia will build 10 more nuclear reactors in energy-starved India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday, after talks with President Vladimir Putin aimed at shoring up ties between the long-time allies.

Putin is in New Delhi seeking to strengthen energy, defence and strategic ties in Asia in an attempt to revive Russia's economy, badly hit by US and EU sanctions over its backing of an uprising in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea.

At a joint press conference Modi, who has sought to cultivate closer ties with the United States since taking power in May, pledged India's continued support for Russia.
