India will take up with the US the controversial letter written by the State Department to the Congress stating that it would stop fuel supplies to India in case of a nuclear test by that country.

"I think that letter contains certain issue which we will take up with the US...," National Security Adviser (NSA) MK Narayanan told NDTV.

He said India has made it clear where it stands. "We have the 123 Agreement with the US, which is awaiting signature. Now the NSG waiver is through we will go through the signature procedure," the NSA said.

In the controversial disclosures on the eve of the meeting of the NSG, the US has made it clear that it will stop fuel supplies and other nuclear cooperation if India conducts a nuclear test.

The US position, which appears at variance with New Delhi's interpretation of some key clauses of the Indo-US nuclear deal, was made public just before the two-day meeting of the 45-nation NSG in Vienna.
