IAEA OK with safeguards agreement: Sources

A fifty-minute-long closed-door affair in a Vienna hotel was what it took for Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon and his team of Indian diplomats to convince the IAEA board members on the merits of the safeguards agreement.

In all, ninety diplomats headed up to listen to India’s case.

A western diplomat told NDTV that the group had many questions but India answered them all. When asked whether it was a good meeting he said ‘yes’. When asked further as to whether he was convinced that it was a good safeguards agreement the answer was again a ‘yes’.

At the lobbying exercise that India undertook with the sixty member countries of the IAEA, things seem to have gone in India’s favour but we have to wait and watch to see what happens on August 1 in the IAEA.
