US, India agree to end row over A-fuel supply

President Reagan and Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, in talks aimed at improving ties between their governments, agreed Thursday to resolve a lengthy feud over fuel supply for India's Tarapur atomic power reactor.

A Gandhi spokesman said the two leaders reached a general agreement that would clear away a dispute over the 1978 US Nuclear Non-Proliferation Act, which bars new fuel supply for American-built Tarapur unless India accepts full international inspection of all of its nuclear facilities. He said details remain to be worked out. France agreed to consider supplying India with low-enriched fuel once an Indian-American accord was concluded.
