India in talks with countries, including Uzbekistan, to create uranium reserve
Central Asia | business | 09:26, 25 September 2017 | 669

AKIPRESS.COM - http://static.ca-news.org/upload/ennews/2/569692.1449631934.m.jpgIndia is engaging with various countries, including Uzbekistan, to procure nuclear fuel as part of its plan to create a strategic uranium reserve to ensure long-term security, Economic Times reported.

Talks are currently being held with Uzbekistan, a senior government official said, and a delegation from the Central Asian country had visited India last month to discuss the issue in detail.

"We have been looking to import uranium from Uzbekistan in the past. Back then, they had refused to transport uranium to an Indian port. But now they have agreed to do so and negotiations are on," said a senior government official requesting anonymity.
