Heritage’s Lisa Curtis explains why Congress must move quickly to implement the US-India Civil Nuclear Deal. The deal would stregnthen US-India relations. India is a key Asian partner that shares our democratic values and political concerns. If this deal is not passed soon, it will have to wait until the next Congress and they would not take it up for several months. that would be about the time of Indias election making it even more difficult for it to pass. Lastly this deal would make India a stakeholder in Global Nonproliferation. The Deal is good for the US, it is good for India, and it is good for Global Nonproliferation.
