U.S.-India Nuclear Pact Put on Hold

The Washington Post reports that India has encountered “certain difficulties” that will prevent it from signing a nuclear deal in the near future. It is believed that leftist parties in India fear that the country is becoming too cozy with the United States. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh signaled that a signed deal could spell the end of his coalition government. Indian communists factions were a primary reason for the disintegration of negotiations.

This is major setback for the Bush Administration. The deal with India and a warming of relations was a bright spot of its foreign policy. Looks like plans of finding a regional counter weight to China have been put on hold.
