INDIA/RUSSIA DEAL

Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, has arrived in New Delhi for talks on joint defence and civil nuclear projects.

The two countries signed an agreement on Friday allowing Russia to build four nuclear reactors in southern India.

Both are expected to approve other defence deals during the Russian leader's three-day visit.

Before arriving in New Delhi, Medvedev said that Russia might also lease nuclear-powered submarines to India as part of a drive to deepen defence ties.

The deal comes after India signed earlier this year a nuclear pact with the US, giving New Delhi access to civilian nuclear fuel and technology on the international market for the first time in three decades.

Overturning a US ban on nuclear trade instituted after India first tested an atomic device in 1974, the US pact provides India with access to nuclear fuel, reactors and technology to generate power for its 1.1bn plus people. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . I AM MYSTIFIED AND DISAPPOINTED BY RECENT ACTIONS BY RUSSIA,U.S.A.AND INDIA CONCERNING NUCLEAR REACTORS,WHETHER IT IS FOR PEACEFUL ? OR DEFENCE PURPOSES. . . . .NUCLEAR ENERGY IS
VERY DIRTY,VERY EXPENSIVE AND DANGEROUS . (news exerpt courtesy al jazeera)
