G-8 backs Indo-US civil nuclear deal

July 09, 2008 17:07 IST

In a major breakthrough for the troubled Indo-US nuclear deal, the powerful group of eight (G-8) industrialised countries on Wednesday decided to adopt a 'more robust' approach to civil nuclear cooperation with India to help meet its growing energy needs.

N-deal important for both India, US: Bush

"We look forward to working with India, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Nuclear Suppliers Group and other partners to advance India's non-proliferation commitments and progress so as to facilitate a more robust approach to civil nuclear cooperation with India to help it meet its growing energy needs in a manner that enhances and reinforces the global non-proliferation regime," the Chair's Summary released at the end of the G-8 summit said in Toyako.
