India must get nuke technology, says US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (www.deccan.com )
Washington, Jan. 6, 2005 - In a strong endorsement of India's quest to acquire technology and equipment to generate atomic power, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has said that it will have to have civilian nuclear energy and not be dependent on countries posing concerns.
She also rejected the notion that the United States was adopting double standards on the nuclear issue, that democracies like India and Israel could have it and others like Iran or North Korea could not. At an interactive session at the State department correspondents' meeting on Thursday, Ms Rice said the US couldn't have it both ways - telling carbon-dependent countries like India not to engage in energy relations with a nation like Iran and at the same time withholding from New Delhi access to civilian nuclear energy.
"We can't say to the Indians on the one hand (that) you can't... we'd rather you weren't engaged in energy relations with, for instance, Iran, but by the way, civilian nuclear (technology) is closed to you," she remarked. "We have to recognise that India is a big and important and growing economy. It will have to access civil nuclear energy," Ms Rice said.
