    China says no change in its stand on India's membership to NSG

    [​IMG]

    China today asserted its opposition to India's membership bid to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), saying there is no change in its stand and efforts were on to forge "consensus" among the 48-member elite nuclear club about the admission of new members.

    "China's position on this remains unchanged," Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told media here responding to Russian deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov's remarks in New Delhi yesterday that Moscow was speaking to China for India's membership into the NSG.

    "China supports the NSG to follow the principle of consensus through consultation through transparent and fair intergovernmental process to deal with this issue," Geng said.

    China, a key member of the NSG, has been stridently opposing India's bid primarily on the grounds that New Delhi is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Its opposition has made India's entry into the group difficult as the NSG works on the principle of consensus.

    China's repeated stonewalling of India's membership bid in the NSG has become a major stumbling block in bilateral relations.

    After India's application for entry into the elite group which controls nuclear trade, Pakistan, China's all-weather ally, too had applied with the tacit backing of Beijing.

    Pakistan's application came despite serious allegation of proliferation of nuclear technology by its scientist A Q Khan.

    Ryabkov yesterday said that Russia is unwavering in its support to India's membership of international nuclear control regimes and Moscow was speaking to China in this regard.

    Asked for his reaction to Ryabkov's comments, Geng said all the members of the NSG supported the two-step approach-to find non-discriminatory solution that applies to all non-NPT countries then on that basis discuss the application of the non-NPT counties.

    He said the focus is on some non-NPT countries who hope to join the group in the capacity of nuclear weapons free countries.

    "At the same time they will not sign the Comprehensive Safeguard Agreement (CSA) of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)" which is mandatory under the NPT, he said.

    "In this circumstance if we agree for the above-mentioned applications, it will have two consequences, that is to recognise the nuclear weapons status of the Non-NPT countries. Secondly, it will cause other than nuclear weapons free countries to follow suit not to sign CSA with IAEA," he said.

    "This will subvert the NPT and whole international non- proliferation regime," he added.

    China suggested that the NSG can pool the wisdom and further explore on this issue and find a solution which can be accepted by all relevant parties and can uphold the international non-proliferation regime with NPT as a cornerstone.

    "On this we will further discuss application of non-contracting parties," Geng said.

    Asked whether the issue will figure in the Russia, India, China (RIC) Foreign Ministers' meeting to be held in Delhi on December 11, Geng said that the meeting will focus on pragmatic cooperation. At the same time they will exchange views on international issues of common concern.

    India can pretty much sit on its stance, because no one gives a ****

    Mmm..... that is a fair trade... India should not join CPEC as it improves Indian economy. India do not want to grow too much. After all, India is the turtle to China been the hare. And slow and steady wins the race. India is amazing with pithy phrases.

    Yes.

    Because India wants to buy a Laser Uranium enrichment technology, and they don't qualify for it without being a NSG member. No reputable country like the US or Japan is going to engage in nuclear trade with India who is not a signatory of NSG charter.

    You think we give a fvck? CPEC is going ahead full steam whilst Indian inclusion into NSG has zero progress. Hadn’t Obama promised entry to India during his tenure? LOL

    We one the very few countries in the World who can make her own reactors . Our govt is promoting more indigenous reactor than foreign made. 10 new indigenous reactors.
    Tell me can a country be backward in nuclear technology if it can make its own Pressurized Heavy water reactors and research reactors and reprocessing plants better than China.

    Boost to transform domestic nuclear industry

    Cabinet approves construction of 10 units of India’s indigenous Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors (PHWR)

    In a significant decision to fast-track India’s domestic nuclear power programme, and give a push to country’s nuclear industry, the Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval for construction of 10 units of India’s indigenous Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors (PHWR). The total installed capacity of the Plants will be 7000 MW. The 10 PHWR project will result in a significant augmentation of nuclear power generation capacity.

    India has current installed nuclear power capacity of 6780 MW from 22 operational plants. Another 6700 MWs of nuclear power is expected to come onstream by 2021-22 through projects presently under construction.

    As the government marks three years of its nation and people centric governnace, in a first of its kind project for India’s nuclear power sector, the ten new units will come up in fleet mode as a fully homegrown initiative. It would be one of the flagship “Make in India” projects in this sector.

    With likely manufacturing orders of close to 70,000 crores to the domestic industry, the project will help transform Indian nuclear industry by linking our goal of a strong nuclear power sector with our indigenous industrial capacities in high-end technologies.

    This Project will bring about substantial economies of scale and maximise cost and time efficiencies by adopting fleet mode for execution. It is expected to generate more than 33,400 jobs in direct and indirect employment. With manufacturing orders to domestic industry, it will be a major step towards strengthening India’s credentials as a major nuclear manufacturing powerhouse.

    The ten reactors will be part of India’s latest design of 700 MW PHWR fleet with state-of-art technology meeting the highest standards of safety.

    The approval also marks a statement of strong belief in the capability of India’s scientific community to build our technological capacities. The design and development of this project is a testament to the rapid advances achieved by India’s nuclear scientific community and industry. It underscores the mastery our nuclear scientists have attained over all aspects of indigenous PHWR technology. India’s record of building and operating PHWR reactors over the last nearly forty years is globally acclaimed.

    The Cabinet’s decision reflects the Government’s commitment to prioritise the use of clean power in India’s energy mix, as part of low-carbon growth strategy and to ensure long-term base load requirement for the nation’s industrialization.

    It also supports India’s commitment to sustainable development, energy self-sufficiency and bolsters global efforts to combat climate change.

    The thing is my friend we just needed uranium and Industrial scale reprocessing technology which not even China has only US , Russia and Japan have it.


    Australia quietly makes first uranium shipment to India three years after supply agreement

    Three years after signing a civilian nuclear supply treaty, the Federal Government confirmed overnight the first shipment of Australian uranium has left for India.


    Foreign Minister Julie Bishop provided little detail about the inaugural sale, saying only that it was subject to commercial negotiations.

    The supply deal with India, signed in 2014, is the first of its kind Australia has made with a country not party to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

    India in talks with countries like Uzbekistan to create uranium reserve

    https://economictimes.indiatimes.co...eate-uranium-reserve/articleshow/60815922.cms




    See what it does is that it frees Indias own Uranium for Weapons production . And India has 200000+ tonnes of Uraniun ore.

    We are a nuclear weapons capable country why do that !!!!

    India has nuclear deals with 11 countries like
    US
    Russia
    France
    Canada
    Australia
    Japan
    etc
    These countries have advanced nuclear programmes and oodles of Uranium

    Japan the most advanced Asian country with civil nuclear technology has made an exception for India

    India, Japan civil nuclear deal comes into force
    The landmark India-Japan civil nuclear agreement came into force on Thursday. Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar exchanged the diplomatic notes with the Japanese envoy to India to formalise the completion of the process.

    “The India-Japan Agreement for Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy entered into force on July 20, 2017 with the exchange of diplomatic notes between Dr. S. Jaishankar, Foreign Secretary and H.E. Mr. Kenji Hiramatsu, Ambassador of Japan to India,” said a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs.

    The pact was signed in Tokyo during the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Japan on November 11, 2016.

    “This Agreement is a reflection of the strategic partnership between India and Japan and will pave the way for enhanced cooperation in energy security and clean energy. It seeks to promote full cooperation between the two countries in the development and uses of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes on a stable, reliable and predictable basis,” said the statement.

    The deal is essential for bringing a network of nuclear energy cooperation for India, especially with the U.S. as prominent American nuclear companies are owned by the Japanese nuclear majors like Toshiba.
