Indo-Russian Nuclear Deal on Dec 5

India and Russia will sign a nuclear deal for the construction of four additional reactors at Kudankulam nuclear power plant and expansion of other sites during Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s three-day visit to New Delhi beginning on Thursday, according to Russian Nuclear Energy Corporation (RosAtom) CEO Sergei Kiriyenko.

Russia and India may also sign an agreement to supply Russian nuclear fuel to Indian nuclear power plants. The bilateral agreement was initiated in February 2008, pending the NSG waiver.

Russia’s nuclear power equipment and service export monopoly Atomstroiexport, has been building two VVER-1000 MWe light water reactors of the Kudankulam plant in Tamil Nadu since 2002 under a pact signed in 1988 by India with the ex-USSR and revived in 1998.
