Australia`s ruling Labor on Sunday voted to overturn a decades-old ban on uranium sale to India,
paving the way for Canberra to supply yellowcake to a nation
outside the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Unless India agrees to open its
military facilities to nuclear inspectors, sale of uranium by
Australia to that country will be a breach of Federal
government`s obligations under the SPNFZ Treaty, a noted legal expert said.
Australia Thursday refused to
concede to India`s repeated requests for revoking a ban on Uranium sale to it, saying Canberra remains steadfast on its policy of not selling the yellow metal to NPT non-signatories.
