In U.S., Indian PM touts nuclear deal, infrastructure | Politics | Reuters
Obama should kill this deal as soon as possible. Seriously. For a candidacy that pledged to eliminate nuclear threats, going forth with a backdoor deal that guts the NPT is unbelievable.WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Monday completing a 2005 U.S.-India nuclear cooperation deal would boost investment opportunities in his country, a hopeful sign for U.S. companies eyeing India's potential $150 billion market in power plants.
Obama should stand up to the Indians and state "Sign the NPT and we'll have a deal."
Setting a precedent that you can get nuclear power deals without signing the NPT is an awful, awful idea.
