India, US agree Defence Pact, approve Nuclear Sites and sale of highly sophisticated US weaponry to India,

NEW DELHI — India and the United States agreed Monday a defence pact that will boost US arms sales here, as New Delhi also approved sites for two US nuclear reactors, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.

At a joint press conference with Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna, Clinton said the two sides had agreed an "end-use monitoring" accord that would provide safeguards for the sale of highly sophisticated US weaponry to India.

The agreement "will pave the way for greater defence cooperation" Clinton said, adding that India had also approved two sites for the construction of US nuclear reactors.
