India, Canada to sell N-reactors together

India is reportedly pursuing a lucrative partnership with Canada to sell nuclear reactors in new markets. A deal announced last year in Toronto by prime ministers Stephen Harper and Manmohan Singh, will eventually clear the way for Canadian uranium to be exported to India once Canada ratifies it.

India is reportedly pursuing a lucrative partnership with Canada to sell nuclear reactors in new markets. A deal announced last year in Toronto by prime ministers Stephen Harper and Manmohan Singh, will eventually clear the way for Canadian uranium to be exported to India once Canada ratifies it.

Presently, India is pursuing joint ventures with Canada's nuclear industry.

"We do think there is a good possibility for us to cooperate in third countries, which would be possible once all these things are sorted out," Indian high commissioner Shashishekhar Gavai said.

"We have developed our own technology over the years. We could bring your expertise and our expertise together, and go into third countries where they require reactors," Gavai said.
