India is engaging with various countries, including Uzbekistan, to procure uranium as part of its plan to create a strategic uranium reserve to ensure long-term security, PTi reported on 24 September. The plan is to have a stockpile of nuclear fuel for its strategic uranium reserve that can sustain India’s reactors for the next five years. Talks are currently being held with Uzbekistan, a senior government official said. An Uzbek delegation visited India in August to discuss the issue in detail. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier held bilateral talks with Uzbek president Shavkat Mirziyoyev on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Summit in Astana in June, PTI reported citing a senior Ministry of External Affairs official, on condition of anonymity.
