MEA Official Spokesperson response to a question on passage of the bill authorizing the US Administration to engage in full civil nuclear energy cooperation between India and the US

New Delhi
July 27, 2006 

In response to a question, the Official Spokesperson said: 

The passage of the bill authorizing the US Administration to engage in full civil nuclear energy cooperation between India and the US, by a large margin of bipartisan votes in the US House of Representatives, demonstrates the broad political consensus in the US in the promotion of Indo-US relations in all fields including in the field of civil nuclear energy cooperation. We must, nevertheless, await the finalized text of the legislation which will emerge after a Senate vote and the reconciliation of the two Bills, before we are able to comment on its contents. As has already been stated, there are concerns that we have conveyed to the United States to ensure that the final legislation must not deviate from the parameters of the Indo-US Joint Statement of July 18, 2005 and the Separation Plan.
