India, Australia to Begin Talks on Uranium Exports
NEW DELHI (AP) — India and Australia agreed Wednesday to begin negotiations on civil nuclear energy cooperation that would eventually allow the export of Australian uranium to the energy-starved South Asian nation.
Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard met with her Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh on the last day of a three-day visit. They discussed strategic and economic ties in addition to nuclear energy.
Singh said Australia’s agreement to start negotiations that would lead to the sale of uranium was a ‘‘recognition of India’s energy needs as well as our record and credentials.’’
