India decides to open civilian nuclear programme to greater scrutiny
India on Monday said the Central government has decided to ratify an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in order to expand oversight of the country's civilian nuclear programme.
"Well, first of all let me confirm to you that the government has decided to ratify the additional protocol to the India specific safeguards agreement," Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said at a press conference here.
He said the move was a signal of India's commitment to abide by 'our international obligations'.
