New Delhi, Sept 8 (UNI) External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee today said India has now to get ratification of the Indo-US nuclear deal and India-specific safeguard agreement which would prove to be the passport for the country's entry into nuclear trade.

''Now we have to wait for the ratification of the 123 agreement between India and the United States,'' he said adding that it has now to supply two other documents which the US Congress require for ratification of the India-specific safeguard agreement.

After ratification, certain other procedural aspects would be completed which would finally enable us to enter in bilateral agreement with other countries.

''As I mentioned earlier, approval for India-specific safeguard agreement is a passport to enter international nuclear trade through bilateral agreements with the supplier countries. Then we will actually enter the nuclear trade,'' Mr Mukherjee said.
