The United States is keen to know India's perspective on Iran's nuclear weapons programme, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said here on Monday.

"In the discussions today (Monday) and to come in future, we will be exploring with India their approach and perspectives towards Iran and any advice that they can contribute to an international consensus about the dangers posed to global stability if Iran were to become a nuclear weapons power," Clinton told reporters at a joint press conference with External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna.

She further said that there was no difference in the positions of India and United States on Iran's nuclear weapons programme.

"Prime Minister Singh is on public record on saying that India does not want to see Iran obtaining nuclear weapons. Exactly the same position as we do," Clinton added.
