Russia, India discuss joint NPP projects in third countries

The sides also discussed further joint work on the construction of new power units in India.

Russia and India are looking at developing joint projects for the construction of nuclear plants in third countries, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.

"Russia and India are discussing a possibility of joint entry to the energy market, including the electricity market, and of joint entry to the markets of third countries with nuclear plant construction projects in future," he told journalists after a meeting of the Russian-Indian intergovernmental commission on trade-and-economic cooperation.

Apart from that, according to Rogozin, the sides are also discussing further joint work on the construction of new power units in India, with an eye of building more than ten power units in that country by 2020.

"Russia continues to develop a series of the world’s safest nuclear plants," the Russian deputy prime minister said. "Currently in focus are the problem of prices, the problem of the construction site and problems of geology. But these are technicalities."
