US has acknowledged that there are differences with India on the issue of Iran, but praised New Delhi's view point on the controversial nuclear issue and appreciated its implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions with regard to sanctions against Tehran.

"On Iran, we don't necessarily have a uniform view of the issue, although on the nuclear question, India has made quite clear its opposition to a nuclear-armed Iran.

It has an admirable record of implementing previous security council resolutions," the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, William Burns, said in response to a question at a think-tank here.

"As I mentioned in my remarks, it's been quite straightforward in holding India accountable at the IAEA board of governors when its failed to meet its obligations, and so that's an issue on which it's also important for us to continue to stay in close touch," Burns said.
