    Please note that a "Joint Declaration" was signed on February 11, 2010. This was not an agreement. It promises to take forward the activities by all appropriate means including the possible negotiation of a Nuclear Co-operation Agreement / MOU, subject to thier international obligations and committments. You can refer to This document which was actually signed. An agreement has a plethora of articles. One of which (Indo-French), you can download here (7.59 MB File). I would like you to please read this para

    "In January 2008, during a visit to India, UK prime minister Gordon Brown said he supported the US-India deal and that he would work with his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh to agree a civil nuclear cooperation deal. A joint statement said that the two countries would "work expeditiously" towards a bilateral agreement on civil nuclear energy."
