US President George W Bush will sign the legislation on the Indo-US nuclear deal, approved by the Congress, into a law on Wednesday, the White House said on Saturay.

Bush will sign the Bill H R 7081, named after Howard Berman, a Democrat who was strongly opposed to the deal on non-proliferation grounds but was brought around to accepting it recently, on October 8 (Wednesday) at the White House.

"The President cordially invites you to the Signing of H.R. 7081, United States India Nuclear Cooperation Approval and Nonproliferation Enhancement Act," reads an invitation sent out by the White House.
