New Delhi, May 4 : Reaffirming UPA Government's commitment to the Indo-US civilian nuclear energy cooperation, External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee today said here that the core aim behind the deal is to have a secure and sustainable energy sources for ensuring country's high economic growth rates.

"Secure and sustainable energy sources are vital for ensuring India's high economic growth rates and enable it to address the developmental challenges of the poorest of its citizens," Mukherjee said, adding," It is an appreciation of this need that is at the heart of the India-US civil nuclear understanding and the larger energy dialogue which focuses on oil and gas, coal, power and energy efficiency and renewable energy."

Speaking at the conference, organised by the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce, here, Mukherjee said, "Much of the attention it (the nuclear deal) has received is a reflection of its tremendous importance, including its impact in changing perceptions both among the public at large and within our two governments and we remain committed to implementing the understanding expeditiously in a way that it adheres as closely as possible to the framework of the July 2005 Joint Statement and the March 2006 Separation Plan."

Mukherjee's statement comes just after the US senators' letter to Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh asking him to severe ties with Iran that has evoked criticism from the opposition BJP and the Left parties. The US senators have also linked the future of the deal with New Delhi's ties with Tehran.

The negotiations on the 123-Agreement between New Delhi and Washington are at crucial stage after it met roadblocks. The successful conclusion of the 123-Agreement, which is expected to be finalised by the end of this month, would lead to ratification of the Henry Hyde US-India civilian nuclear energy cooperation Act.
