The last mile in the nuclear negotiations - by M.R. Srinivasan

A timeline that is arbitrary would only put pressure on the Indian negotiators and may lead to an agreement neither acceptable to the Indian people nor in the national interest. The historic agreement between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and United States President George W. Bush concluded on July 18, 2005, declared their resolve to "transform the relationship between their countries and establish a global partnership." The past two years have witnessed serious negotiations between the two countries, on a civil nuclear energy cooperation agreement, held in New Delhi, Washington, and elsewhere. We are approaching the last mile with a d elegation including National Security Adviser M.K. Narayanan, Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Anil Kakodkar, and Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon, beginning talks in Washington next week.

This should stop us in our tracks – bleeding heart human rights activists jumping up and down in rage after the Gujarat riots, screeched that Hindu fascists had caused incalculable damage to Gandhi the First’s (Gandhi I) dream of secular India and to his ahimsa.
