US has assured India that it need not worry about the Nuclear deal despite G-8’s decision to put a bar on the India-US civil nuclear deal to help non-NPT countries to reuse uranium.

Robert Assistant Secretary for South Central Asian Affairs, said that, “I don’t think there should be any apprehension about the future of the civil nuclear agreement,”

“The secretary and the president (Barack Obama) are fully committed to that agreement. I think the Indians are also fully committed.” –he said

Reports have confirmed that India and US are going to start the reprocessing talks either at the end of July or at the beginning of August.

Blake also said During Clinton’s visit, the US also hopes to sign an agreement on end use monitoring and another agreement on two sites which would be made available exclusively to the US for setting up nuclear reactors offering a major opportunity for American companies that could bring $10 billion in business to them, he said.

“So I would discourage any talk that the agreement is off track.” – he ended.
