    China and Pakistan have agreed to cooperate in uranium exploration and mining. China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) said it had signed a framework agreement with the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission yesterday for technical cooperation in the exploration and development of uranium resources. China signed a similar agreement with Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

    Under the new agreement, China's uranium industry will fully employ its technological advantages, its nuclear research institutes, nuclear chemistry industry, aerial remote sensing centre and other units in its cooperation with Pakistan.

    CNNC, which said Pakistan is an "important bridge across the Middle East and South Asia", has already exported four 300 MWe reactors to that country and is constructing two 1000 MWe units. It said it is actively engaged in cooperation with Pakistan in uranium resources, nuclear technology applications, the training of workers and other areas.

    In March, CNNC signed a memorandum of understanding with the Saudi Geological Survey regarding bilateral cooperation in uranium and thorium resources. Under the agreement, CNNC is to carry out exploration of nine potential areas in the Kingdom within the next two years. In late May, CNNC said it had completed the fieldwork phase and identified several target mineral areas for further investigation.

    On 15 July, CNNC's Beijing Research Institute of Chemical Engineering and Metallurgy signed an agreement with Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology to collaborate in research on extracting uranium from seawater. According to that agreement, Saudi and Chinese researchers will conduct a two-year investigation.

    You make it sound like as if you have tons of options. If you can't do something yourself, at least let someone else do it for you.

    This is all we are good at in this land. Complaining and bickering. Pulling each other's legs. Just calms down and let China do the job.

    CHINA Nuclear Uranium Corp, a subsidiary of China National Nuclear Corp, signed an agreement with Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission to boost nuclear technology collaboration, China Nuclear Energy Association said yesterday.

    The agreement, signed on Sunday, is to help the two nations explore and develop uranium which is used as fuel for nuclear power, the association said.

    The deal also expands the market of China’s nuclear power technology in the “belt and road” region, according to the association.

    Stop crying like a baby. LOL at the KSX remark. How much should it have been sold at? Stop blaming the Chinese for your own inept. What has your country done all these years to promote KSX and up its value? You know the answer to that. Just let the Chinese run it. At least they will get things done. China will flow its capital in KSX and introduce new companies. There is a lot to be gained here by Pakistan.

    Stop running your mouth because of a mere mention of your master.

    This is economic colonization. Pakistan is 3rd world, genius. Obviously it's stock market will not be as valuable as NYSE or LSE. Does that mean we just give up and sell it at this stage? What else are we going to sell to China that we haven't already?

    Normally you sell when you get advanced and big... instead we've sold when its at it's infancy. We've sold so much to them for pennies. This is called being far too dependant on 1 country. Anyone who isn't inept wouldn't need me to spell it out.
