The United States on Friday rejected suggestions that goalposts were being moved or bars being raised regarding implementation of the nuclear deal with India.
"There is no need for suspicion regarding the US-India civil nuclear agreement. The agreement remains the same agreement agreed in July 2005 in Washington and concluded formally when President Bush visited India in March 2006," US Ambassador to India David C Mulford said while chatting on the web with a cross-section of people including mediapersons.
"We are now engaged in negotiating certain detailed aspects of the bilateral agreement necessary to implement the deal and to seek the necessary change in law in the US Congress. No goalposts are being moved, no bars are being raised. It's just plain steady work to get the job done," he said.
