Once a fierce opponent to the Indo-US civilian nuclear deal inked during the previous Bush era, the Obama Administration’s nuclear non-proliferation czar Ellen Tauscher is now in the forefront of US efforts to implement the landmark treaty between the two countries.

Tauscher said that her opposition to the Indo-US civilian nuclear deal is now a thing of the past. To a question on non-proliferation treaty (NPT), she said that both India and Pakistan are “very special friends of the US” and that it would not pressurise these countries to sign NPT.
