Russia has started delivering low-enriched uranium to the Tarapur nuclear power plant in India
Russia has started delivering low-enriched uranium to the Tarapur nuclear power plant in India, The Hindu newspaper said Thursday. Russia will deliver 50 tons of low-enriched uranium for the Tarapur-1 and Tarapur-2 generators, or enough to last them until 2012, the newspaper said, quoting a source in the country's nuclear energy ministry. Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov earlier this month made an official visit to New Delhi, during which he said Russia would supply the fuel, adding that supplies were in the two countries' interests and did not contradict international commitments. Moscow's intention to provide India with uranium provoked controversy among international nuclear suppliers. In early March, the United States agreed to share nuclear technology and fuel with India, which has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the main tool in international disarmament efforts. India in return pledged to separate its military and civil facilities and open nuclear power plants to UN inspections. The deal, yet to be formalized, is said to be crucial to India's booming economy.
