The US-India nuclear pact, declared "almost certainly dead" last month, will probably be signed by the Indian government after all. ++ The onus of getting it implemented is therefore back on the US. ++ Congress must stop pressuring India into backing US policy on Iran. ++ India shouldn’t have to choose between good relations with itself and Tehran. ++ PM Manmohan Singh will not agree to toe the US line on Iran because it needs Iranian gas. ++ The US, however, needs good relations with India to balance the growing power of China in Asia.
