India wants Africa to relax Pelindaba Treaty so that India can access Uranium from Africa for its nuclear power projects.
India had already signed an MoU with Namibia aiming at the cooperation in the areas of peaceful use of nuclear energy in 2009. But since Namibia became a member of Pelibanda treaty, it did not ratify the agreement.President Pranab Mukherjee on his trip to Namibia will seek cooperation from Namibia to enter a treaty with India aiming at the supply of Uranium from Africa.
Namibia is the fourth largest producer of Uranium in the world and India needs Uranium for it nuclear power projects. This makes Namibia an important source of Uranium for India.
