Russia Angling for Nuclear Reactor Contracts in India

Hosted by

Before last November's election the Bush Administration, with virtually no opposition from then-minority Democrats, approved a massive nuclear deal with India. It was based in part on projections of increased trade with American suppliers. Today, India entertained an offer from Vladimir Putin to build four nuclear reactors in India.  The Russian President reportedly will be guest at India's Republic Day celebrations after meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, as we hear from Chidanand Rajghatta of the Times of India.
