Czech for closer ties with India in N-power sector
New Delhi: Czech Republic, the second biggest exporter of nuclear energy to European countries, is keen on having a "very close cooperation" with India in the nuclear power sector.
Ambassador of the Czech Republic to India Miloslav Stasek said there was a "positive move" in this direction from Czech nuclear firms and the government, which are ready to start supply of parts required for Indian nuclear firms.
Noting that nuclear energy is playing a very important role in the Czech Republic, he said his country was looking forward to a close cooperation with India in this sector.
"Of course, we would like to have a very close cooperation with India in nuclear power sector," he said on the sidelines of a function here.
Stasek said an agreement on nuclear cooperation signed between India and erstwhile Czechoslovakia, which later split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, in 1967 is "still valid".
He said the Czech Republic`s special envoy for Nuclear Energy visited India thrice and there was a "high profile visit" from India to his country.
"That means there is a regular traffic of high-level visits between both of us. We are trying to focus on the cooperation and to do some joint project in this field," Stasek said.
On last year`s Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan and its impact on the Indian nuclear energy sector, he said India has learnt a lot from the incident.
