RSS chief KS Sudarshan on Sunday asked the Centre not to fall for "luring tactics" of the United States to offer nuclear power cooperation to India in return for opening up Indian nuclear facilities for international inspection.
He also the Centre stick to its policy of non-interference in Iraq.
Addressing a huge gathering of RSS workers and supporters on the concluding day of the `Vishva Sangh Shibir 2005', Sudarshan said India must guard against the US which was now trying to "lure" India (by offering nuclear assistance for civilian purposes) to open it's nuclear facilities for inspection and sign the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.
"We must realise that not everybody is a gentleman in this world," he said.
"India's policy of non-inteference in Iraq was right. America (United States) did its best to lure India into Iraq for establishing peace. But India did right by not falling for the attractive offers of help made by the Americans,"
"Americans invaded Iraq only for its oil reserves. Today, it is trapped in Iraq. They are wondering how to get out (of Iraq) and so they want some nation like India to take it's place," he said.
