New Delhi, July 31 (ANI): External Affairs Minister SM Krishna today informed the Rajya Sabha that individual nations will implement civil nuclear agreements with India on bilateral basis as the G8 resolution on curbing transfer of enrichment and reprocessing technology to non-NPT signatory countries was not a legally binding document.

Allaying concerns over the End User Monitoring Agreement (EUMA) with the US, Krishna said it does not limit India's sovereign choice of whether, where and what weapons we choose to buy for our national defence.

Commenting on the Indo-US relations, he said the ties have been transformed in the recent years and signing of the civil nuclear deal last year was a major development in this regard.

Krishna also said the 45-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), which had granted India-specific clean waiver, has taken no decision in this direction. (ANI)
