Kazakhstan is keen to expand civil nuclear ties with India, its envoy here said Wednesday.
Ambassador Doulat Kuanyshev said the two strategic partners should look beyond and enhance ties in the nuclear sector, and let Kazakhstan's atomic power company Kazakhprom and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited expand cooperation.
"We should look beyond. Kazakhstan is (among) main exporters of natural uranium in the world and India has the potential to increase its nuclear power capacity," Kuanyshev told reporters.
