US House of Representatives passes nuke deal

After many hours of debate, the US House of Representatives has passed the Indo-US nuke deal by a 359-68 majority.

The deal though will take effect only when the Senate also passes a similar legislation later this year.

The bill will change existing American laws in order to give India greater access to sensitive US technology.

The draft bill was earlier approved with an overwhelming 37-5 in the House International Relations Committee on June 26.
