NEW DELHI - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said here Friday that Russia will build nuclear reactors and supply fuel and waster disposal to India under the nuclear cooperation pact with New Delhi.
"Cooperation with India in nuclear energy will include building reactors, supply of the fuel and waste disposal," Putin said during a video-conferencing session with Indian businessmen.
Putin, who is on a one-day visit to India, said that he sees nuclear power generation in India as a promising area of cooperation between Moscow and New Delhi.
