A senior US official has said he is convinced that a landmark nuclear pact with India reached in July will be approved by Congress - despite some lawmakers' reservations - and that the deal would likely be in force by the time President George W. Bush visits India. US Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns, who held daylong talks Friday with Indian officials on the specifics, said both countries were working hard to implement the agreement that would allow the US to supply India with nuclear fuel, technologies and equipment. Energy-starved India has been looking for new power sources and wants more nuclear plants to meet the needs of its more than 1 billion people, but lacks the technology to build reactors and the fuel to run them. It has previously depended on Canada, France and the Russians to build nuclear power plants.
