NSE Nifty futures traded on the Singapore Exchange gain 0.24 percent, while the MSCI-Asia Pacific index excluding Japan is up 0.33 percent.

Asian shares inched forward and the yen slipped in early trade on Tuesday after Crimea's vote to join Russia passed relatively peacefully, but investors remained wary ahead of this week's US Federal Reserve policy review.

US stocks climbed on Monday, with the S&P 500 bouncing from its worst weekly drop in the past seven, as concerns eased over the situation in Crimea, while economic data indicated the economy was improving after a winter slowdown.
