US Says India Nuclear Deal May Depend On Iran Vote
25 January 2006

REUTERS (NEW DELHI) - The United States said on 25 January 2006 a nuclear cooperation deal with India may stall unless New Delhi votes against Iran next month at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) meeting. The IAEA meets on 02 February 2006 to discuss whether to refer Iran to the U.N. Security Council over a nuclear program the West says is aimed at developing nuclear weapons. US ambassador to India, David Mulford, told the Press Trust of India news agency that if India decided not to vote against Iran, "the effect on members of the U.S. Congress with regard to the civil nuclear initiative will be devastating."
