A Sri Lankan delegation has gone to India for holding bilateral discussions with regard to the nuclear power plant scheduled to be constructed at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu.
A Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman said that a group of his ministry and Power and Energy ministry officials had joined this tour yesterday.
Discussions will be held with Indian authorities with regard to the risks that Sri Lanka could encounter as a result of this nuclear power plant constructed in India.
Indian media reports said recently that pumping fuel to the Kudankualam Nuclear Power Plant had now begun.
This 1000 megawatt Nuclear Power Plant is being constructed by the Indian Nuclear Power and Energy Corporation with Russian support.
It is said that a 70-tonne Nuclear fuel is required for the plant.
A large number of Indo-Sri Lanka environment organisations oppose the
construction of this Nuclear Power Plant
