New Delhi, Oct 23 (UNI) Germany, a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), is in favour of the Indo-US nuclear deal but wants India to sign the CTBT.

A senior official of the German embassy here said today that India has the legitimate right to peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

However, Germany would like to wait till it sees the final outcome of the deal and India's negotiations with the IAEA. Germany as a State would be able to decide (on its stand) once it knew all the details, the official said.

Asked whether the issue would come up at the discussions German Chancellor Angela Markel will have with Indian leaders during her upcoming visit to the country, the official said until all the parameters were in place, the issue would probably not be dealt with.
