Islamabad, Oct. 2 : Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has said that his country was looking forward to an India-US like nuclear deal which was approved by the US Senate on Wednesday evening.
Like India, Pakistan too has the right to use civilian nuclear power, the Dawn quoted Gilani as saying at a press conference in Multan.
The legislation, which was approved by 86-13 vote by the US Senate, is now sent to President George W. Bush for signing into a law. The House of Representatives had already approved the pact.
The deal, considered a key part of Bush's foreign policy legacy, was a step the Bush administration believes will secure a strategic partnership with India.
