Draft IAEA agreement unveiled

Draft IAEA agreement unveiled The draft Safeguards Agreement reached between New Delhi and IAEA, unveiled by theIndian government, acknowledges the plan made under the Indo-US civil nuclear deal by which India will offer its civilian atomic facilities to be put under safeguards, keeping out the military facilities.

The draft, which is a key step in implementation of the Indo-US nuclear deal, envisages that India would undertake that none of the items produced in the safeguarded facilities and material received for them shall be used for the manufacture of any nuclear weapon or to further any other military purpose.

Such items shall be used exclusively for peaceful purposes and shall not be used for the manufacture of any nuclear explosive device, says the draft, which was made public a day after the IAEA announced that the document has been circulated among its Board of Governors.
