New Delhi, July 19 (IANS) India and the US need to resolve some issues on the nuclear agreement between the two countries, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said here Tuesday.

“With regard to our civil nuclear agreement, this represents a major investment by both of our countries. In this critical bilateral relationship, we need to resolve the issues that still remain,” Clinton said at a joint news conference with her External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna.

She, however, did not specify the issues that remain unresolved.

The two leaders addressed the media after talks that lasted over two-and-half hours. They are believed to have discussed the landmark nuclear deal and fresh complications arising from the new guidelines of the Nuclear Suppliers Group, which deny access to enrichment and reprocessing (ENR) technologies to countries that have not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
