Kerry Foresees Progress in Implementing U.S.-India Atomic Deal
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced that he anticipates the U.S. company Westinghouse Electric inking an accord no later than September with a government-owned Indian nuclear energy company, which if it comes to pass would mark substantial progress in efforts to exercise a landmark 2008 U.S.-India atomic energy cooperation agreement, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.
The bilateral nuclear deal has not yet been implemented due to a domestic Indian law that Washington contends would place unfair liability requirements on the foreign providers of atomic technology, in the event of an energy plant accident.
Kerry is in the nuclear-armed South Asian country for several days of strategic talks with his Indian opposite, Salman Khurshid, the Journal separately reported.
