N-liability issue to come up during PM’s France visit

The resolution of problems related to nuclear liability in Indo-French co-operation is likely to be discussed between the two countries when Prime Minister Narendra Modi travels to France in April.

French minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy Segolene Royal, who is on a three-day visit to India said this here on Friday.  “I am sure that he (Modi) will discuss it because this is a subject the discussion for it needs to go further... and we need to look for solutions on the issue. Lot of work has been done on the bilateral level and also between the companies.  “I think it is a very good subject and a very important subject to understand the division of responsibilities. In France also the issue of responsibility and liability is something we are locking at and not just for nuclear energy but also renewable energy,” Royal told reporters.

French foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, also visiting India, yesterday met PM Modi and discussed the Indo-US nuclear breakthrough but Fabius said it was “not in a granular form” and noted that the “template is already set” for the Indo-French nuclear cooperation.
