The report titled, “the three overlapping streams of India’s nuclear programmes” by Kalman A Robertson and John Carlson at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs of the Harvard Kennedy School, noted problems in India’s nuclear programme arising from gaps in the commitments New Delhi had made after its nuclear deal with the US and in its separation plan, safeguards and additional protocols.

Robert | 4 years ago | Reply Choosing the nuclear Pakistan as the target for lack of security of these weapons, is the normal functioning of the disinformation windmills of USA. But Now no one will utter a single word when India is mentioned in the report
Sid | 4 years ago | Reply Material does not support the title. The report is only to please Pakistani audiences and a stupid attempt by groups who wants to add additional International monitoring on Indian nuclear facilities.
