`Resolve Enron issue'

NEW DELHI, FEB. 6. The U.S. today bluntly told India that it should resolve the Enron issue as soon as possible. It also said that economic reforms should be hastened to check mounting fiscal deficit and privatisation should be speeded up to improve the foreign investment climate.

``Implementation of key fiscal, financial sector, trade and investment reforms are all important issues that will help India unleash its tremendous economic potential, achieve its growth targets and alleviate poverty in this country,'' the U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary, Kenneth Dam, said.

Mr. Dam had hour-long meetings with the Finance Minister, Yashwant Sinha and the Disinvestment Minister, Arun Shourie. He is scheduled to meet the Commerce Minister, Murasoli Maran, tomorrow.
