PM briefs CWC on Indo-US N-Deal
Addressing the Congress Working Committee convened to discuss the India-US nuclear deal, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that India had the right to test and US had the right to react.
In explaining the deal, the PM provided only the bare bones of a complex web of commitments that India and the US will be bound with once the 123 pact is passed into law.
Article 5(6) clause IV of the Indo-US Nuclear Deal makes provision for US and India jointly convening a group of friendly supplier countries to pursue such measures that restore fuel supplies in case of a disruption. The clause is seen as a guarantee against a Tarapur-type situation occurring in the future.
