Nuclear Energy: India to get nuclear fuel from Russia

Australia's ABC Asia Pacific, reports that India has said it is to receive uranium from Russia to run two atomic power plants that have struggled to find fuel after the United States stopped supplies more than three decades ago.

The supply agreement comes almost two weeks after India and the U.S. sealed a deal which aims to give India access to nuclear fuel and know-how from the United States. Five years ago, the United States strongly opposed a similar move by Russia. State Department spokesman, Adam Ereli, says Washington now thinks the supply deal should move ahead.
