- Australia backflips on uranium to India
TOKYO - Fresh from her Asia-Pacific Economic Forum meeting in Hawaii and on the eve of President Barack Obama's arrival in Canberra on November 15, in an opinion piece published in an Australian newspaper, Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced that at the next month's Labor Party annual convention she would seek support from her party to end the ban on exports of uranium to India.
Gillard's sudden and surprising backflip will most definitely bring smiles in political and policy circles in India and many in Australia will also be celebrating this announcement.
But the Greens' leader Bob Brown, whose support for the Gillard government remains crucial, has already warned in his typical language that uranium sales to India would lead to a "nuclear arms race".
