India's government said it would hold off on finalizing a landmark civilian nuclear energy deal with the United States for at least a month after inconclusive talks with its communist political allies, who oppose the accord. The result of a meeting Monday between the governing Congress party and the communists seemed certain to further fuel doubts about the future of the pact. The deal would reverse three decades of American anti-proliferation policy by allowing the U.S. to send nuclear fuel and technology to India, which has been cut off from the global atomic trade by its refusal to sign nonproliferation treaties and its testing of nuclear weapons. Billed as the cornerstone of a new partnership between India and the US, the deal has faced growing opposition in India, especially among communist parties that are key to the survival of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's government.
