India's Growing Pains: Watch This
India, which has few domestic sources of fuel, also plans to build a 1,750-mile gas pipeline from Iran through Pakistan, a project that has raised concerns in Washington.
U.S. Ambassador David Mulford said that if India does not vote to refer Tehran to the U.N. Security Council, it would be "devastating" to the landmark nuclear deal between India and the United States currently before the U.S. Congress.
The deal? It was signed when Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visited Washington last July and provides sharing civilian nuclear technology and supplying nuclear fuel to India in exchange for New Delhi allowing international inspections of military and civilian nuclear facilities. The United States has agreed only to recognize India's civilian nuclear program - not the legitimacy of the nuclear weapons state.
Stay tuned to the news for major developments in the coming weeks.
