New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that his government will try to ensure that the US takes a ‘more favourable attitude’ towards the extradition of former Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson to stand trial in India in the Bhopal gas leak case.
Singh told journalists accompanying him on his way back home from Toronto that he did not raise the issue in his discussions with US President Barack Obama during his meeting with him on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit.
“Well, we are where we stand. We will try to ensure that US government takes a more favourable attitude towards the extradition. But we have not approached them yet. I did not raise this issue in my discussions with President Obama.”
“We will cross the bridge when we come to it,” Singh said in reply to questions.
