India and the United States will build six nuclear power plants in India, said a joint statement issued on March 13 at the conclusion of India-U.S. Strategic Security Dialogue in Washington.
India and the U.S. had signed an agreement to co-operate in civil nuclear energy in October 2008.
The two countries committed to strengthen bilateral security and co-operation to deal with threat of terrorism.
A special waiver was given to India.
The special waiver enabled India to sign co-operation agreements with a dozen countries.
The two sides exchanged views to prevent proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
They also discussed a wide range of global security and non-proliferation challenges and ways to deny access of weapons of mass destruction to terrorists.
Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Andrea Thompson, Indra Mani Pandey, Yleem D. S. Poblete and others attended the meeting.
