New Delhi: Russia and India are working towards another civilian nuclear project besides Kudankulam, Roman Babushkin, charge d’ affaires of the Russian embassy here said today.
The first two reactors at Kudankulam are in operation and work in the remaining four is going on. There is also talk of working together on a fast-breeder reactor and modular ones, he said.
Civil nuclear power is one of the major pillars of the bilateral relationship between the two countries, the others being defence and space. Babushkin spoke of Russian efforts regarding India’s manned mission and said his country would adapt to India’s requirements of defence spares.
There will be joint production and mentioned two Russo-Indian projects— the BrahMos cruise missile and the AK-203 assault rifle. He added that defence was the “strongest pillar holding up the relationship and all projects were on the table.”
Asked about the transfer on lease of an Akula-class nuclear powered submarine, he said: “What is good for India is good for the world.”
Trade, particularly increased Indian exports to Russia, are on the cards and the total value of the bilateral trade should reach $100 billion by 2030, he said. Part of that include petroleum exports to India and also, joint projects in the petrochemical sector. The strengthening of the Vladivostok-Chennai is also happening, he added. There is a plan for Russian investment in India’s infrastructure and more Indians working in Russia.
Russia and India are two independent global powers in a multipolar world and “external factors” do not play a role. What Russia’s relationship with China is, it will not make a difference to ties between Moscow and New Delhi.
