Le nucléaire civil en Inde. Intérêts économiques et enjeux géopolitiques


  • Raphaël Gutmann


Since 2008, India got rid of its nuclear embargo thanks to the decisive support of Washington, which considers New Delhi as an economic and strategic sustainable partner to contain the rise of China and stabilize South Asia. Although it is grateful to Washington, India doesn’t feel itself a tributary of this country. On the one hand, its nuclear market is opened to all the actors of the area, such as the French Areva and the Russian Rosatom. On the other hand, New Delhi, which is aware that its development will remain dependent on oil and gas supplies, continues to negotiate with countries isolated by its Western partners, like Iran. Indeed, New Delhi maintains a diplomacy which can appear contradictory with the West, and thus reinforces its status of non-aligned ally of the United States.
