India’s commitment to safety praised by IAEA
The UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) after completing a 12-day review on India’s nuclear safety reports have come now under the conclusion that India has a strong commitment to safety.

It was also said that India needs a national policy for the nuclear safety and radioactive waste management and also needs more internal emergency measures. India has also started a deal with the US for the Indo-US civilian nuclear. Yukio Amano left India after having met with PM Modi in Delhi. Narendra Modi’s discussion will be about nuclear trade for reactors and fuel when he visits France and Canada by next week.
