New Zealand has expressed reservations about the nuclear deal. Will a second NSG meeting be required to get its approval?
There are a lot of people who say we probably will [need a second session]. We do not know for sure until we have the meeting.
I think what's important is that both we and the Indian government have been working on two levels.
First, we understand that this is different from your standard nonproliferation activity. So a lot of countries have a lot of questions about where this deal fits in the general nonproliferation framework that we have got and
whether it contributes to that framework. We think it absolutely does and therefore we want to go forward with it. Countries are going to have questions. India has been answering a lot of
those questions. We have been answering a lot of those questions. So I am not surprised to hear countries say they have questions and issues that they want to discuss.
We have also been talking to countries on a more political level. I think people do understand the outlook of India upon its own future. Clean energy for economic growth is an important factor for a lot of people. Carbon emissions is an important factor for a lot of people. India's cooperation more broadly with the West is an important factor for a lot of people. And so I think countries are looking at it at both levels -- both the technical and nonproliferation level and the political level – and we have been trying to keep that dialogue going and would like to do so all the way through. Secretary of State [Condoleezza Rice] was in New Zealand not too long ago and she talked to them there.
