IAEA, NSG must investigate series of Uranium thefts in India: Senator Saher Kamran

June 7, 2021 Islamabad: International Nuclear Safety and Security Institutions should carry out prompt investigations on the unapproved availability, theft and sale/acquisition of Uranium in India, Senator Sehar Kamran said Sunday.

The second instance of Uranium burglary and its sale by a network organization in India has been caught in 30 days, she said.

The PPP leader said it is a matter of deepest concern, as it not just uncovers the defective and faulty atomic security structure of a country, which enjoys NSG Waiver, but is also likely to present grave danger to global peace and security.

“There are numerous questions, how a sizeable amount of Uranium was taken and for what reason,” she addressed.

India’s nuclear safety and security record isn’t great, in past numerous accidents and security related occurrences have been reported for.

IAEA and UN Nuclear Watchdog should pay heed to such security lapses and NSG should reexamine waiver given to India, Sehr Kamran said. She added that unlawful promoting of Uranium and atomic material can have serious negative results. In accordance with the NSG exemption, India accessed worldwide uranium market and has set up an enormous uranium reserves.

She further says: “What steps will the NSG nations take to hold India to the international standard and guidelines of atomic security? This directly impacts global safety and security.”
