US certifies India-IAEA pact

world Updated: Feb 05, 2010 00:33 IST

In yet another step towards full implementation of the India-US civil nuclear deal, President Barack Obama has certified that India has placed its nuclear facilities under the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards.

Obama made the Congressionally-mandated certification in a presidential memorandum to the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking her to have it inserted in the Federal Register that records all government actions.

Obama’s confirmation that India has agreed to provide the UN nuclear watchdog access to nuclear reactors takes the deal yet another step closer to implementation.
