Australia's Uranium Export Ban To India

Australia is the world's third-largest producer of uranium.Canberra lifted a long-standing ban on exporting uranium ore to India though India is not a signatory to the NPT .The labor party reversed its decision without making any change in the India’s disagreement to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty(NPT).But Tony Abbot said they took a safeguard in uranium dealing to India. "We have satisfied ourselves that the steps (for appropriate safeguards) are in place," Trade minister Andrew Robb said .India has a chronic power shortage .Its most power comes from fossil fuels including oil, coal and natural gas.Thus Australia is supplying uranium to cope with the power crisis in India.

“India has an absolutely impeccable non-proliferation record – and India has been a model international citizen.India threatens no one. India is the friend to many. India is the world's emerging democratic superpower, and this (uranium deal) is an important sign of the mutual trust that exists between Australia and India," Abbot said.

India has been in an attempt to use nuclear energy as an alternative. It has 20 reactors with a capacity of 4,780 megawatts. but just nine are functioning at capacity. India hopes that it will be producing 63,000 megawatts of nuclear energy by 2032.
