Op-eds/Statements


Buenos Aires -- The members of the NSP's Latin American Leadership Network released a statement calling for the United States, Egypt, Israel, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Pakistan, India, China and the DPRK (North Korea) to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. They write, "Although the countries that possess nuclear arsenals, with the exception of North Korea, have been observing unilateral, voluntary moratoria on nuclear weapon tests for several years now, the entry into force of the instrument is a longstanding goal of the international community and would constitute a major achievement in promoting nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament."

Ramesh Thakur

Op-eds/Statements


Canberra -  In the first of a two-part commentary on India's nuclear weaponization, the APLN's Ramesh Thakur argues that India gained very little in terms of strategic, military or political utility after its five nuclear tests in 1998.
