London, June 27 (IANS) The Indo-US nuclear deal is “not dead” but probably won’t happen this year, former US Assistant Secretary of State Robin L. Raphael said. “My feeling is that it was hurried through. The agreement wasn’t very well socialised,” Raphael said Thursday on the sidelines of a conference on India and Pakistan in London.
“It’s not dead dead. But I don’t think it will happen this year - it will take some more time,” she told IANS.
Raphael, who was Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia in the first four years of the Clinton presidency, also said the Democratic Party had softened its traditional anti-proliferationist and protectionist views.
The two-day London conference has been organised by the Tehelka media group.
