NEW DELHI, June 3 (UPI) -- The future of India's nuclear program is expected to be a topic when U.S. President George Bush and India's prime minister meet at the G8 summit in Germany.

India and the United States failed Saturday to resolve differences over a landmark nuclear deal, despite three days of talks in New Delhi, Press Trust of India reported.

The United States last year ended a 30-year ban on nuclear cooperation with India, but officials of the two countries have failed to agree on terms under which the United States would give India nuclear fuel for civilian power generation.

Both sides, however, remain certain an agreement can be reached, said Indian Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon.

Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singhingh are expected to discuss the deal during side talks at the G8 summit, where the primary agenda is on global climate change, and international trade and investment.
