    That is right.

    WASHINGTON: The US must acquire the latest technology and efficient methods to produce nuclear power to be a major player in the sector and assure countries like India that America is committed to bilateral atomic energy cooperation, Energy Secretary Rick Perry has said.

    Perry, who visited India in April this year as part of the Trump administration's move to enhance bilateral energy cooperation, told reporters during a media round table yesterday that he had "very good conversations" with Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on nuclear energy, clean coal and carbon capture utilisation.

    Appreciating India's effort to partner with the US on nucleal power, Perry said the US needs to take steps to have the latest technology and efficient methods to produce nuclear power otherwise it will be conveyed to countries like India and Saudi Arabia that America is not committed to nuclear power.

    "If we don't keep our ability to be a player in a technological sense, whether it's building reactors as Westinghouse Electric Co does or whether it's the pipeline of young people moving into nuclear energy because they see a future there. If we were to lose our ability to be a player in the nuclear power business, it's going to have a long-term impact," he said.

    It sends a short-term message to the Saudi Arabia, with which the US is currently in the process of negotiating a 123 Agreement, he said.

    "It sends a short-term message to the Indian leadership that America is really not committed to nuclear power, so why should we go into a partnership with them and it appears that they're not even going to support their industry in the United States," Perry explained.

    So, this is a really important conversation to have, he noted.
