Nuclear energy Namibia is the fourth largest uranium producer
Mukherjee, who was on a three-day visit to the southern African country spoke about India's wish to import uranium. Mukherjee said there was need to add value to Namibia's economy by using efficient methods to extract minerals.
Such methods, he said, would contribute to the sustainable development of Namibia's mining sector.
According to Geingob, the Namibian government would "look into legal ways" of how India can use uranium from Namibia since India is not a signatory to the non-proliferation of nuclear treaty. Namibia is the fourth largest uranium producer in the world. ■
