Abbott expected to sign uranium deal during India visit

India is not a signatory to the Nuclear-Non Proliferation Treaty but Mr Abbott said Australia should be prepared to sell uranium to India under suitable safeguards.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott will travel to India later today, where he is expected to sign a deal on uranium exports.

“And I make the point that if we are prepared to sell uranium to Russia - and we’ve been prepared to do that in the past - surely we ought to be prepared to provide uranium to India under suitable safeguards.
