Threat to Pakistan Nuclear Arsenal Has India Worried



The Times of India reports India is “very worried” about the security of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal and the prospect of it “leaking” to terrorist entities like al-Qaida and its affiliates. This will be raised by India on the sidelines of the nuclear security summit, which started here on Monday.

India will flag these concerns, not at open plenary sessions but quietly lobbying with other nations, because the summit technically does not allow for naming specific countries. On the whole, India sees the nuclear summit as a vindication of its long-standing position that the security of nuclear materials is key to ensuring the goals of both non-proliferation and disarmament.

The PM will have separate meetings with Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev on Sunday, Canadian PM Stephen Harper and French president Nicholas Sarkozy on Monday.
