In addition to factors at the structural and domestic political level, several personalities played key roles in the negotiations that made the nuclear pact between India and the United States a reality. US President George W. Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh led the way. Bush had the support of Condoleezza Rice, his Secretary of State; R. Nicholas Burns, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs and Bush's foreign policy advisor in the 2000 presidential campaign; and former US Ambassador to India, Robert D. Blackwill, and his advisor, Ashley J. Tellis. On India's part, important figures included Sonia Gandhi, head of India's ruling Congress party; former External Affairs Minister, Pranab Mukherjee; former National Security Advisor, M.K. Narayanan; and the Prime Minister's Special Envoy, Shyam Saran.
