    India signs N-agreement with Namibia

    STAFF WRITER 21:59 HRS IST
    New Delhi, Aug 31 (PTI) India and Namibia today signed a civil nuclear agreement and four other pacts with a vow to inject "fresh dynamism" in their ties.

    The five agreements were signed after talks between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and visiting Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba here.

    Namibia, which has substantial quantity of uranium, became the fifth nation with which India signed the civil nuclear agreement after getting a waiver from the Nuclear Suppliers Group in September last year.

    India has already inked similar agreements with the US, Russia, France and Kazakhstan.

    Under the Agreement on Cooperation in Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, the two sides will trade uranium and exchange expertise in designing of atomic plants and train personnel.

    NEW DELHI, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- India and Namibia have signed key agreements on defense cooperation and peaceful use of nuclear energy, reported local daily The Tribune Tuesday.

    India has also announced its decision to offer Namibia 100 million U.S. dollars of credit for the next five years to be used in projects and products from India. The two countries also signed MOUs on cooperation in geology and mineral resources and establishing a pan-African e-network, as well as waiver of visas for diplomatic and official passports, said the newspaper.

    This was decided during the on-going visit by Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba in India starting early this week.

    Pohamba met with Indian President Prathiba Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and they discussed a wide range of issues including bilateral ties and international development, said the report.
