Australia would be sending uranium shipment to India. The country’s High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu, was quoted on Tuesday at a fest in the national capital expressing the country’s desire in the “near future”. While both the countries had signed a civil nuclear deal in 2014 to promote the supply of uranium to India, the exports of uranium are banned in the country as it is not under the Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Speaking at the Australia Fest in Delhi, Sidhu said, “Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was here (in India last year) and after prime minister’s visit, she had mentioned some samples were sent to the Indian authorities for testing to make sure that the uranium was fit to be sold. I understand that conversations are going on and we are genuinely hopeful that there will be a shipment of uranium in the near future. I can assure that from the Australian government’s perspective, there is a high level of support and we’re very keen to see such progress.”

One of the world’s largest exporters of uranium ore is Australia. the country is having 40% of its reserves. Both India and Australia had signed a civil nuclear pact in 2014 to aid the supply of uranium to India.

Though the exports of uranium in India are banned as the country is not a part of the Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT), Australia has been backing India’s entry into the Nuclear Suppliers’ Group (NSG).

Sidhu on Tuesday unveiled the program for Australia Fest – a six-month celebration of Australian culture, involving over 75 events across 20 cities in India.
