India, South Korea sign nuclear deal
Seoul: India and South Korea on Monday signed an accord on nuclear cooperation, a statement said.
The agreement was signed after a summit in Seoul between visiting Indian President Pratibha Patil and her South Korean counterpart Lee Myung-bak, a news agency reported, citing the statement from the South Korean President`s office.
During the talks, Lee called for support for South Korea`s efforts to make inroads into India`s atomic power plant market, the statement said.
India is currently building six nuclear power plants and plans to construct around 40 more by 2032, while South Korea seeks to become a major exporter of its home-built nuclear power plants.
The state-run Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO) signed a memorandum of understanding in 2009 with the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited.
