Safeguards pact complex: Kakodkar

VIENNA: Indian negotiators continued their discussions with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for the second day on Thursday on a safeguards agreement, which the Atomic Energy Commission chief said was “complex” and had to be worked out.

The discussions at the international atomic watchdog proceeded even as the U.S. Ambassador to the agency, Gregory Schultz, expressed the confidence that his country’s civil nuclear cooperation agreement with India would be implemented.

Anil Kakodkar, who initiated the process of discussions with the Director-General, International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei on Wednesday on an India-specific safeguards agreement as a follow up of the deal with the U.S., left for home leaving other negotiators to continue the job.

“The safeguards issues are a serious business, involving complex issues. We have to work out all these,” he told PTI before his departure. Observing that Wednesday’s meeting set out a broad outline of the complex issues, he said, “We have to take up all the issues related to it.” He declined to elaborate. — PTI
