    New Delhi, Oct 14: India and Argentina signed an agreement in civil nuclear cooperation and nine other pacts to establish strategic partnership.

    According to official sources, the agreement was signed by Vivek Katju, Secretary in the Ministry of External Affairs and Argentine foreign minister Jorge Talana.

    A joint statement issued after the talks said, "Taking into account their respective capabilities and experience in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, both India and Argentina have agreed to encourage and support scientific technical and commercial cooperation for mutual benefit in this field."

    Argentina became the seventh country with which India has signed a civil nuclear agreement after the 45-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group lifted a 34-year-old ban on nuclear commerce in Sep 2008.

    India has already signed similar pacts with the US, France, Russia, Kazakhstan, Namibia and Mongolia.
