The International Atomic Energy Agency says it has signed a nuclear inspections deal with India. The so-called safeguards agreement is meant to give UN monitors access to 14 additional Indian civilian nuclear reactors by 2014. Six of these reactors already fall under existing agreements. The IAEA's 35-member board of governors approved the agreement by consensus on August 1. Approval came despite criticism from some countries that ambiguous wording could limit international oversight of India's reactors and undermine the international nonproliferation treaty. IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei and Indian Ambassador Saurabh Kumar signed the agreement on Monday. The inspections plan was a prerequisite for implementation of a landmark India-US nuclear deal.
