Canada, India may ink nuclear agreement (Rediff, October 10, 2007)

Canada and India are optimistic about reaching a deal that could open the door for the Canadian industry to export nuclear reactors to New Delhi for the first time in over three decades, media reports said in Toronto on Wednesday.

Canada severed its nuclear ties with India in 1974 after New Delhi detonated a weapon using material from a Canadian reactor. But Canada renewed its civilian nuclear trade with India two years ago.

The move comes on the heels of a nuclear agreement signed between India and the United States, the Montreal Gazette reported.
