India, Australia discuss uranium exports

An important high-level meeting between India and Australia was held in New Delhi. At the meeting, Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh and his visiting Australian counterpart Julia Gillard held talks on strengthening economic and strategic ties and explore cooperation in civil nuclear energy. The two leaders also discussed about Australia’s decision to overturn a long standing ban on exporting uranium to countries that have not signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. India has not signed the treaty. Australia has 40 per cent of the world’s known uranium reserves.
