"Both the good and the pleasant present themselves to a man. The calm soul examines them well and discriminates. Yea, he prefers the good to the pleasant; but the fool chooses the pleasant out of greed and avarice." - Katha Upanishad 1.2.2

     New Delhi, Jan 25: In a major step in strengthening bilateral ties, India and France on Friday signed atomic energy co-operation pact. Speaking at a joint press conference after meeting French President Nicholas Sarkozy, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said, "We have signed a bilateral atomic energy co-operation pact."

 

     French President Nicholas Sarkozy said at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that, "France wishes to build up international consensus to allow India to use nuclear energy."

 

     "India has never proliferated and it has made it clear that it wants to separate civil nuclear programme from the military one," he said.

 

     "France favours waiver to India to allow it to have access to civil nuclear energy," he said.

 

     "India has declared a moratorium on nuclear testing," he added.

 

     Regarding the ongoing controversy over L N Mittal's steel plant in France, Sarkozy assured that, "Mittal is a friend and we called him to discuss how to save his steel plant without cutting down on jobs."

 

     He further added that "Indian investors are more than welcome in France."

 

     Visibly satisfied with the outcome of the meeting, the PM also said, "France has agreed to support India for a permanent seat at the United Nation's Security Council (UNSC).

 

     The Prime Minister also notified that France and India have agreed for co-operation in military research & development and the relationship will go beyond from being just "buyer and seller".

 

     India and France have also signed bilateral agreement for co-operation in trade, space and education. It has also been decided that an Indian cultural centre will be opened in Paris.

 

     Meanwhile, Manmohan Singh said that France will support India's quest for removal of international bans over its nuclear capabilities, which are still in place.
