Updated on : Tuesday, July 14, 2009

NEW DELHI: With nuclear cooperation with France set to intensify, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressed hope that his visit to France would lead to building up the partnership in atomic energy.

Mr Singh in his departure statement was clear that India was looking forward to building a strong civilian nuclear partnership with France, which was the first country India signed an agreement with after casting off the nuclear apartheid status.

“We would like to build upon our partnership in the areas of trade and investment, high technology, space, nuclear energy, defence, education, culture, tourism and scientific research and development,’’ said Mr Singh in a departure statement. He left for a five-day tour that will first take him to France and then to Egypt for the 15th Non-Aligned Summit.
