IAEA/NSG clearance to India

The issue of a nuclear deal between India and the USA has raised a storm over the last few months. Yesterday, the two principal multilateral organizations (the IAEA and the NSG) ended more than 30 years of nuclear isolation and allowed India to resume trading in civilian nuclear energy. While the debate over the impact of this waiver ('clean or not') rages on,the least that India gains is a chair at the nuclear high table and the space to negotiate for energy technology. A great achievement, by any standard.
