Washington, Jul 24: The Indo-US nuclear agreement is finally back on track, according to US officials and lawmakers. As Prime Minister Manmohan Singh won the trust vote with a huge margin, US were heaving a breath of relief too.

Sources say now India must act quickly to make sure it can deliver the agreement back to the US Congress for a final mandatory approval before the Congressional calendar expires in September. The agreement will have no problem in the US sEnate as it is unanimously supported by Republicans and Democrats.

“We all know that India could be one of the most significant countries in the world but it"s just got to have an energy source that can be counted upon, and that's the good news about nuclear power. It"s very a reliable form of power, it"s very clean and it'll be very beneficial to the people of India," Congressman Joe Wilson says.

Experts believe the agreement will sail through the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) with member countries including UK, Australia and Russia backing the agreement.
