September 30, 2008 19:24 IST
After inking the first civilian nuclear agreement with France [Images], India on Tuesday assured its European partners that it plans to enter into similar pacts with them in future.
"Today we signed a bilateral agreement in this area with France and we expect to finalise agreements with other European partners too," Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] assured CEOs of major European companies while addressing the India-EU Business Summit in Paris.
Dr Singh said India has opened up its civil nuclear commerce sector for foreign collaboration.
The agreement, hailed by both New Delhi and Paris, will form the basis of wide-ranging bilateral cooperation from basic and applied research to full civil nuclear cooperation, including reactors, fuel supplies, nuclear safety, radiation and environment protection and nuclear fuel cycle management.
