New Delhi, Sept 17 : India has conveyed to American businessmen that the approval of the landmark Indo-US civil nuclear deal will open new opportunities for them and contribute to energy security besides reducing global warming.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi, while addressing a luncheon meeting organised by the United States-India Business Council, pointed out India's impeccable record on non-proliferation.
Ravi, who is heading a high-level delegation to the United States, said that India would maintain a moratorium on testing.
He said, "The accord would also help India to combat climate change and strengthen global non-proliferation."
He further said that India appreciates the US leadership for creating conditions for it to resume international nuclear commerce and added that the ratification by the Congress of the 123 agreement would strengthen Indo-US ties.
