Here's the cruncher.

IIRC, India has most of the world's thorium reserves along its Malabar coast. Throium that goes into its fast breeder reactor program. In fact, if I have this right, India is currently the world leader in Thorium based nuke energy research if only because nobody else quite has reserves like that.

A nuke deal where thorium based tech can be shared with the US would be nice. No more one way handing down tech and aid anymore. India has exported its best brains to the US, well, how about finished tech - a much more complete product?

India and America together would have a tech advantage in the world. Each by itself would be lost in the crowd.

Is that part of today's deal?
