Australia PM to sign long-awaited nuclear fuel deal with India

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott speaks in Mumbai on September 4, 2014Australia’s prime minister is due to sign a deal Friday allowing nuclear fuel exports to energy-hungry India, as he meets the country’s new premier on a visit to boost economic ties. Tony Abbott, who flew into New Delhi late on Thursday after meeting business leaders in Mumbai, said the long-awaited agreement was a sign of “mutual trust” after a long-standing ban on uranium sales to India was lifted in 2012. The world’s third biggest uranium producer, Australia had previously ruled out such exports to nuclear-armed India because it has not signed the global non-proliferation treaty. “India has an absolutely impeccable non-proliferation record and India has been a model international citizen,” he told reporters in Mumbai.
