    Background: United States Secretary of State George Shultz arrived in India on June 29, and was greeted by Foreign Minister Narasima Rao. On the following day, he met Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and President Zail Singh. Mr Shultz flew to New Delhi from Bangkok, as part of Asian tour. One of the main results of his visit to India was the resolving of a controversy over the supply of spares for an Indian nuclear reactor. The agreement on the reactor parts, announced on June 30 after talks between Mr Shultz and Mr Rao, lifted a cloud over ties between the two countries. The United States agreed to allow India to look for alternative suppliers of components for the U.S.-built reactor near Bombay if the United States could not provide these parts. India had asked for spares for the safety of the reactor, but U.S. laws ban the export of nuclear fuel and equipment to countries which, like India, do not allow full international inspection of nuclear facilities. Mr Shultz, who was due to leave India for Pakistan on July 2, on the final leg of his four nation Asian tour, also discussed the situation in Afghanistan and the supply of United States arms to Pakistan. But some Indians were less satisfied than the government with Mr Shultz's visit, and a group of demonstrators marched towards the US embassy in New Delhi carrying anti-U.S. banners and chanting anti-U.S. slogans.
