‘India`s N-liability law not consistent with CSC’
Washington: India`s 2010 nuclear liability law is not consistent with the Convention on Supplementary Compensation (CSC) on Nuclear Damage, the US has said.
"There continue to be serious concerns that India`s 2010 nuclear liability law is not consistent with the CSC," the State Department said.
"The IAEA is an appropriate venue for clarification on issues related to the Convention on Supplementary Compensation on Nuclear Damage, which deals with international nuclear liability. The Agency can be helpful in assisting countries in
evaluating their compliance with the CSC," it said.
Such a statement from State Department comes after top US officials this week urged India to take steps to ensure that its nuclear liability bill is in tune with international standards.
The issue was first raised by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in New York when she met External Affairs Minister SM Krishna on Monday; and then followed by Deputy Secretary of State William J Burns and Assistant Secretary of State for
South and Central Asia Robert Blake.
