India, US will share civil nuke technology, fight terror

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Mar 3 (UNI) US President George W Bush today said America and India would share civilian nuclear technology under the deal sealed yesterday to reduce the pressure on fossil fuels and meet the challenges of rising oil prices and fight terrorism together.

Addressing a gathering at the 'Purana Quila'' here before leaving for Pakistan at the end of a successful three-day tour, Mr Bush said the deal would ''strengthen the bonds of trust'' between the oldest and largest democracies.

Implementing the ''historic initiative'' would also strengthen the ''security and economy of our two nations'' and reduce environmental pollution, he said.

Announcing the two countries' determination to fight terrorism jointly, he pointed out that a large number of Indians were among more than 3,000 people killed in the 9/11 attack on the twin world trade towers in the US.

He also recalled the terrorist attack on Indian Parliament and said the two countries would not be ''frightened'' by the ''weapon of fear'' of the terrorists.

The terrorists should understand that ''we love freedom and we will fight to keep it,'' he said.
