Nuclear Suppliers Group’s restrictions on ENR will not affect India

While the new Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) guidelines have effectively banned transfer of enrichment and reprocessing (ENR) technology to NPT non-signatories raising doubts over the 2008 exemption to India, New Delhi has managed to garner assurances from its three main civil nuclear partners over their commitment to bilateral agreements with India. US  Russia and France had in different statements said that the NSG guidelines will not undermine the waiver which allowed India entry into the field of civil nuclear commerce.

The assurance from these nations is likely to  cool down nerves in India which has been grappling with the 46-nation NSG's agreement on the amendments to NSG guidelines applicable to transfers of sensitive enrichment and reprocessing technologies.
