U.S., Indians talk on nuclear deal
Indian and U.S. delegates met for a second day Friday to seal "a civilian nuclear" deal between the two countries, officials said.

The deal has been delayed by disagreements over clauses that India says could limit its nuclear weapons program and, in the process, impinge on its sovereignty.

On Friday, U.S. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns met with India's junior External Affairs Minister Anand Sharma in New Delhi, said Unni Menon, a U.S. Embassy official. Technical-level talks were also held.

Details were not immediately available on the progress of the talks, which were set to end Saturday.

Burns was also scheduled to meet India's External Affairs Minister Pranab Kumar Mukherjee and National Security Adviser M. K. Narayanan.
