New Delhi, June 17 (IANS) “India should sign the nuclear deal (with the US) sooner rather than later,” Russia’s ambassador to New Delhi Vyacheslav I. Trubnikov said here Tuesday. Speaking on the eve of crucial talks between the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) and Left parties on the stalled civil nuclear deal between India and the US, the Russian envoy observed that opposition to the deal was “a matter of internal policy rather than external policy”.

Referring to the debate between the UPA and the Left parties opposing the deal, Trubnikov said the decision should be based on “how useful (the deal is), how suitable and at what price.”
