Ensure implementation of nuclear deal: U.S.

A senior Obama administartion official has said that Indian should ensure the full implementation of the India-U.S. civil nuclear deal and that New Delhi is aware about this, but have not done it yet.

“The Indians know very well, how we feel about the necessity to get these things done and they assure us that they are but they are still not done,” the Undersecretary of State for Arms Control, Ellen Tauscher, told Washington—based Defense Writers Group at a breakfast meeting.

“We are working closely with the Indian allies and partners. There are a number of things, legislatively, that they (India) have got to do including some of the indemnity issues,” said Tauscher, in response to a question.

Notably, Tauscher during the Bush Administration, as a member of the Congress, was a key opponent of the deal but now is in favor of its full implementation.

The issue also came up for discussion when the Deputy Secretary, William Burns, visited India recently.
