What is India's stand on nuclear non-proliferation treaty?

  • I don't think India will sign NPT. India can only be accepted as a Non Nuclear Weapon State (NNWS) in the NPT if it unilaterally disarms and gives up its military nuclear program.

    As long as India has two Nuclear Weapon ready Enemies, India wont sign it.

  • @sumit08162 India's stand on NPT is that India will not accept a treaty which is biased against the P5. NPT should be equally applicable to the P5, not just the developing countries. India argues that the NPT creates a club of "nuclear haves" and a larger group of "nuclear have-nots" by restricting the legal possession of nuclear weapons to those states that tested them before 1967, but the treaty never explains on what ethical grounds such a distinction is valid.

    India, as such is against Nuclear Weapons but she says, the hostile neighbourhood has made it a necessity for India to possess these weapons.

    Btw, you should try searching Wikipedia before posting such simple questions. :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_on_the_Non-Proliferation_of_Nuclear_Weapons

    Minor correction, it should be - ... India will not accept a treaty which is biased in favor of P5.
