ASTANA: Kazakhstan on Wednesday signed an agreement with India to supply New Delhi with 5,000 tonnes of uranium over the next five years, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev said after meeting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday.

“The signing of a contract to supply India with 5,000 tonnes of uranium from 2015 to 2019 is testimony of the systematic development of cooperation in the energy sphere,” Mr Nazarbayev said at a news conference.

Kazakhstan is the world’s leading uranium producer.

“We greatly value our relationship with Kazakhstan,” said Narendra Modi, adding it was “one of the first countries with which we launched civil nuclear cooperation”.

Kazakhstan supplied India with 2,100 tonnes of uranium between 2010 and 2014.
