India, U.S. to Discuss Nuclear Export Guidelines

India, U.S. to Discuss Nuclear Export Guidelines

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and top Indian officials are expected next week to discuss new Nuclear Suppliers Group guidelines against the export of sensitive technologies to select nations, the Times of India reported (see GSN, July 11).
The 46-nation group in 2008 granted a special exception enabling members to engage in civilian atomic trade with India, even though the nuclear-armed South Asian state has not signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Last month, though, the organization acted to prohibit the export of nuclear fuel enrichment and reprocessing systems to countries outside the treaty.
Washington and other NSG members have said they remain committed to conducting nuclear business with New Delhi.
