ISLAMABAD China has confirmed plans to help Pakistan expand its Chashma nuclear energy complex by building two more reactors of about 300 megawatts each. These two reactors would be in addition to the two including the one already operating while other was nearing completion. Well-placed sources informed TheNation on Tuesday that China has also invited the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to exercise safeguards and oversight of this project. Sources said that China does not need not to seek approval for the two new Chashma reactors No-3 and No-4 from the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) as this project is based on an agreement signed between the two countries in 2003. The proposed nuclear reactors at Chashma were part of an agreement signed by Pakistan and China before the later had joined the NSG in 2004. Pakistan badly needs these units in efforts to tackle its chronic power shortages.
