New Delhi, July 26 (IANS) The Indian government was now more confident than it was a year ago of “positive sentiment” in the Nuclear Supplies Group (NSG) on the India-US civil nuclear deal, the prime minister’s special envoy on the nuclear deal Shyam Saran said here Saturday. Just back from Dublin where he had gone to gather support from the Irish government in the NSG, Saran said he was confident of “getting a waiver from the NSG” that would allow the deal to go through, though India was not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The former foreign secretary said India was sending special envoys to various NSG member countries to explain India’s position on the nuclear deal, “now that the deal is back on track”.
