Australia’s pro nuclear Foreign Minister hastening sales of uranium to India

Australia working to ensure uranium supply to India: Bob Carr to SM Krishna The Economic Times, 11 JUL, 2012,   Australia today said it was in the process of working out internal arrangements to ensure supply of the yellowcake to New Delhi.

Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr conveyed this to External Affairs Minister S M Krishna during their talks here in the Cambodian capital on the sidelines of the ASEAN Ministerial meeting.

“As you are aware, Labor party had earlier decided to reverse its policy and supply uranium to India. Mr Carr informed the External Affairs Minister that they are in the process of working out internal arrangements which will enable them to give effect to this policy of the Labor Party and as a government they will finalise this (arrangement) and come to India shortly with the draft,” MEA Spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said……
Despite resistance from opponents, the landmark policy change was
carried out, paving the way for the first Australian
country-to-country agreement to sell yellowcake to a nation outside
the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty…. However, it had earlier
declined sale to India citing a policy that barred nuclear trade with
countries that were not signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation

  1. Yes this treacherous lot would export their mothers if they could make a dollars profit from a sale. Absolutely no morals, no ethics, no compassion and not a statesman among this nation’s two major political parties. A pox on both their houses.
