Canada's international trade minister on Wednesday said Canada is very close to signing a nuclear deal with India.
Stockwell Day said Wednesday the pact will let Canada sell India nuclear technology and uranium for civilian use.
Day announced in January that government-owned Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. signed a memorandum of understanding with India for next-generation nuclear reactors.
The international community lifted a three-decade ban on nuclear trade with India last September even though India still refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
India reportedly wants to build 25 to 30 new reactors in the coming years.
