‘Nuke energy for India, China to meet climate goals’
New York: India and China would need nuclear power to meet their energy needs while tackling with climate change, UN Climate chief Yvo de Boer said on Thursday.
"If you look at countries like India and China...which are highly reliant on coal I really don’t see us coming to grips with Climate Change at a global level without nuclear energy playing a role," Boer who is director of the United Nations Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC), told journalists here.
He did not, however, rule out the need to have safe disposal methods.
"But nuclear energy can only play that role if we can deal with issues of safety, if we can deal with issues of waste and if we can find people that actually want one of these things in their backyard," he added.
"And those are critical factors whether you go to China, India, Japan or this country (US)," he said.
"Afghanistan has been defamed by corruption. Our government has been defamed by corruption," Karzai has said.
"We will strive, by any means possible, to eradicate this stain."
Many leaders including Ban have warned Karzai that he will lose support of the international community if he fails to root out terrorism.
Last month, an attack by the Taliban on UN personnel at the guest house in Kabul killed five and wounded nine. In an earlier attack, the UN lost five more members in a terrorist attack against the World Food Program office in Islamabad.
