Joe Biden is the presumptive Vice President, improves chances of US-Indo Nuke Deal

Barack Obama's just announced that his VP is going to be Senator Joseph Biden, also the Chairman of U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

Its good news for India as he was a strong backer of the Indo-US Nuke Deal, and was also quoted as saying that he would push the deal in the Congress "like the devil". Being the Chairman o Foreign Relations, Joe Biden also visited India earlier this year, to make a brief stopover in New Delhi in order to discuss matters concerning the nuke deal with Indian leaders.

During his stay, he is said to have met Manmohan Singh and Pranab Mukherjee, apart from other officials at the Ministry of External Affairs to discuss all relevant matters.

The co-sponsor of the bill , Democrat Joe Biden had also said
When we pass this bill, America will be a giant step closer to approving a major shift in US-Indian relations. If we are right, this shift will increase the prospects for stability and progress in South Asia and in the world at large.

So lets hope for the very best for both Joe Biden and Barack Obama!!
