Clinton pushes India on nuclear law, market access

July 19, 2011 10:03

NEW DELHI - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged India on Tuesday to open markets faster and resolve questions on a civilian nuclear accord that US companies hope could mean billions of dollars in new business.

Clinton opened high-level US-Indian talks with a polite but firm push for New Delhi to get moving on key economic issues as both sides seek to firm up a relationship that thus far has promised more than it has delivered.

"The stakes are high. So it is critical that this dialogue lead to concrete and coordinated steps that each of our governments take to produce real results," Clinton said in her opening remarks at the meeting, the latest in a series of talks aimed at deepening political and economic ties between the United States and the world's second most populous country.
