    US mulling nuclear deal with Pakistan

    India today voiced concern over reports of the US mulling a nuclear deal with Pakistan on the lines of Indo-US pact and cited Pakistan's nuclear proliferation record to oppose it. "Whosoever is examining that particular dossier should be well aware of Pakistan's track record in the area of proliferation. And when India got this particular deal it was on the basis of our own impeccable non-proliferation track record. That is the reason US gave us 123 agreement in 2005 and that is why we got a NSG waiver in 2008. Pakistan's track record is completely different so we hope that will taken into account in making any such decision," spokesperson in the External Affairs Ministry Vikas Swarup said. (PTI)
