After asking Congress to approve the India-US civil nuclear deal, President George Bush Thursday invited Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to the White House Sep 25 to strengthen the bilateral partnership in other areas. “The president is pleased to approve the US-India Agreement for Peaceful Nuclear Cooperation (also known as the 123 Agreement),” the White House said hours after Bush sent the implementing accord to the legislature.“The president looks forward to working with Congress to ensure passage on the agreement this year,” it said in a statement as officials led by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice kept up the push to hasten the approval process.
