France for nuclear pact with India

France was looking forward to "large-scale nuclear co-operation' with India in the civilian arena once India reached a satisfactory agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), French Ambassador to India Jerome Bonnafont said here on Thursday. France was even "ready to sign' a nuclear agreement with India, but only after India agreed to a safeguards agreement with the IAEA and received exemption from the NSG.
