Breaking the long lasted logjam, US President Barack Obam and Prime Minister of India – Narendra Modi signed the agreement that led the way to make the Indo-US nuclear deal operational.
The Indo-US nuclear deal had already been signed in 2008 but could not become operational as two parties have not agreed on some issues like nuclear liability.
However, President Barack Obama used their executive powers to waive the conflicting terms in the agreement.
President Barack Obama has been on the visit to India as a chief guest for the republic day.
“The deal is the centrepiece of India’s transformed relationship with US, demonstrating new trust.”
