    WASHINGTON/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The United States and India said on Friday they have completed negotiations on a nuclear cooperation deal that would offer enormous benefits for both sides. But neither country gave details of the long-delayed, controversial accord and acknowledged critical steps must be taken before it can be implemented. The pact, approved by India's cabinet on Wednesday, would allow India access to U.S. nuclear fuel and equipment for the first time in 30 years, even though New Delhi refused to join non-proliferation pacts and tested nuclear weapons. "The conclusion of negotiations on this agreement marks a major step...
  • India's 'Great Game' in Afghanistan

    Nitin Gokhale Tuesday, April 24, 2007 (Kabul) For the first time ever a team from the Indian Army will be training the Afghan National Army (ANA). The team is heading to Kabul in the next few months. The decision, which has huge strategic implications, will certainly irritate Islamabad. A greater Indian presence in its backyard will not be taken too kindly but for India it also means making it's presence felt in other countries in central Asia. The army is shedding its traditional reluctance to get involved in India's extended neighbourhood. By the end of May an Indian military team...

    NEW DELHI -- At a time when even friendly governments are quick to distance themselves from the United States and its pugnacious, embattled president, India is a strategic maverick. The former firebrand of the Non-Aligned Movement has chosen this moment to forge a close partnership with Washington and to speak up positively about American power in world affairs. "This lack of nuclear cooperation is the last remaining cobweb from our old relationship, and we can now sweep it aside," Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said with an expressive wave of his hand. "There are no other barriers to a more productive,...

    NEW DELHI: US President George W. Bush has in 48 hours in India won over many a hardened sceptic by pulling off a historic new deal that experts hail for giving India a strategic weight and potential and removing two 'Ps' from the relationship. "There is now no reason for the US and India not to trust each other," Lalit Mansingh, a former ambassador to the US, said, capturing the new comfort level between the hitherto 'estranged democracies'. Mansingh, who was foreign secretary when the India-US rapprochement started and bilateral ties took a turn for the better during Bill Clinton's...

    The Indian and US navies have set up a Valentine’s Day tryst with aircraft carriers. The USS Ronald Reagan, named after a predecessor of US President George W. Bush who is scheduled to visit in early March, will be teaming up with the INS Viraat off the coast of Sri Lanka on February 14. The USS Ronald Reagan is steaming in from Singapore at the head of a carrier strike group that is forward deployed in the US’s “global war on terrorism”. The rendezvous for the passage exercise — or Pas Ex — was set up in quicktime because the...

    KALAIKUNDA, NOV 17: As the Cope India 2005 Indo-US air force exercises wound down today after two weeks of feverish action in the eastern skies, the US Air Force were left with a stark, double-edged realization. One — that it is no longer the unchallenged leader in the skies, and two—for all future joint operations in South Asia, the IAF would, without doubt, be its natural partner. Vice Commander of the US Pacific Air Forces Lt Gen Dave Deptula said: ‘‘I have never seen a better executed exercise in my 29 years with the USAF. This will go a long...

    NEW DELHI: India might still be shy of openly jumping onto the controversial US-led Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) bandwagon but it's certainly steaming ahead to practice mammoth operations with American forces on the high seas. India's largest-ever naval exercise with any country will kick off on Sunday when Indian and American aircraft carriers, destroyers, guided-missile frigates, fighter and surveillance aircraft undertake combat manoeuvres in the north-west Arabian Sea. The sheer scale of this 10-day Indo-US exercise, "Malabar-05", can be gauged from the fact that it will involve almost 10,000 officers and sailors from the two nations. "This will be the...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Saturday hailed a resolution passed by the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog that required Iran to be referred to the U.N. Security Council over its nuclear plans and thanked India for backing Washington's bid to isolate Tehran. "This is a significant step forward in the international effort to isolate Iran and a setback for Iran's nuclear strategy," said U.S. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns in a conference call with reporters. Earlier on Saturday, the International Atomic Energy Agency's board in Vienna passed a resolution requiring Iran to be reported to the U.N. Security Council at...

    An Indian Air Force IL-76 aircraft delivered 25 tonnes of relief supplies for the Hurricane Katrina victims at the Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas, recently. The relief supplies comprised 3,000 blankets, bed sheets, tarpaulins and personal hygiene items. IAF's IL-76 took off from Palam airport, Delhi, on September 10, 2005, and reached the US via Muscat, Cairo, Lisbon, Lajes and Boston. Indian Ambassador to the US Ronen Sen earlier presented a cheque of $5 million to the US Red Cross on behalf of the Indian government.

    The North Arabian Sea would become the stage of a formidable build-up of naval armada, including 100,000-tonne displacement United States carrier Nimitz, as Indian and American flotilla cross swords in a nine-day joint manoeuvre from September 25.The eighth series of exercises, billed the most advanced so far, would not only see the pride of the US seventh fleet,  Nimitz, in action, but also bring the carrier-based E2C Hawkeye Air Early Warning aircraft, the Los Angeles class submarines and the F-18/A hornet to Indian shores. Against such formidable forces, the Indian Navy would pit its lone carrier, INS Viraat, carrier-based Sea Harriers,...

    Washington: The Bush administration came under heavy fire from the US Congress for bypassing it and negotiating a significant civilian nuclear deal with India despite its known support for Iran's nuclear ambitions and the US stand on the issue. At a three-hour hearing of the House International Relations Committee yesterday, key lawmakers visibly upset and at times angry, made no bones about their being kept in the dark over the India-US nuke deal which reverses decades of US nonproliferation policy and could require significant changes to US laws. ''You chose an initiative, which you may not be able to deliver...

    BANGALORE, India - India and the United States have resolved a dispute over intellectual property, enabling them to sign an agreement on scientific collaboration next month, India's science minister said Friday. The dispute prevented the nations from signing the accord during Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to Washington in July. "We have now agreed upon the language and the finer points," Science and Technology Minister Kapil Sibal said at a seminar on the future of scientific cooperation between the two countries. The agreement, covering areas like health care, biotechnology and nanotechnology, will be signed during Sibal's visit to Washington...

    I have long maintained that today’s global jihad calls for a reconfiguration of American alliances. The sham friendships the United States maintains with Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and other jihad-exporting states may be motivated by political expediency – and, in the case of Saudi Arabia, economic necessity – but no one can maintain that in view of America’s long-term strategic and security interests that in the long run they represent sound foreign policy.
