Bush signs nuclear deal with India

Ending three decades of "isolation" for India, President Bush today signed path-changing legislation that will enable American firms to assist in the expansion of India's civil nuclear power generationopening significant new trade doors with an emerging Asian power once at odds with the United States.

The agreement represents a reversal of decades of discord with India, which developed its nuclear weaponry outside the bounds of international treaties and long stood as a Cold War ally of the Soviet Union.

"This will represent a major sea change in the way the world works," said Nicholas Burns, the undersecretary of state for political affairs who negotiated the deal with India. "There is a larger story herethe U.S. is making a strategic move to build a stronger relationship with India,'' Burns added, suggesting that after more than three decades of adversarial relations the U.S. is "bringing India in from the cold."
