P-57 Bush - US Senate backs India nuclear deal

US Senate backs India nuclear deal The US Senate has overwhelmingly voted to pass a controversial deal to share civilian nuclear technology with India.

Under the deal, which was proposed more than a year ago, India must allow international inspections of its nuclear facilities..... US President George W Bush hailed the move as bringing India into the "nuclear non-proliferation mainstream".

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh strongly defended the deal in the parliament in August..... He said India would not accept any move by Washington that would impede its atomic weapons programme, nor would it allow any international scrutiny of its military facilities.
