The US looks at an end-use monitoring agreement that it hopes to reach with India during Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit as “part of the fulfilment” of their “important” civil nuclear deal. “We are working with India on an end use agreement (for sensitive US technology and equipment”,” Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, Philip J. Crowley told reporters Friday leaving it to “officials in India to indicate that we have reached an agreement” after meetings between Clinton and Indian leaders. “But clearly, this is part of the fulfilment of an important initiative that India and the United States have signed in the area of nuclear cooperation,” Crowley said. “Obviously, it’s going to take some time to implement that agreement.” “I’m sure that this will be substantial area of discussion and the various leaders will reflect on the progress that is made in terms of both fulfilling the initiative and its various components,” he said. Asked if he expected any announcement on two nuclear sites reserved for US entities in India, Crowley said: “Whatever news we’re going to make in India, I’ll leave to the Secretary there.”
