Press Statement

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
On Nuclear Cooperation Agreement

The CPI(M) has already stated that an agreement on civilian nuclear cooperation with the United States can be based only on the assurances given by the Prime Minister in the August 17, 2006 statement in parliament and by not accepting those provisions of the Hyde Act which are contrary to India’s interests.
The CPI(M) will formulate its stand on the outcome of the recent talks after studying the details of the talks.
