Pakisatan's PM Nawaz Sharif

October 13, 2016: After hitting out at Pakistan, India claimed that nuclear proliferation linkages active today have clear ‘Pakistan fingerprints’ and an ‘unbridled’ expansion of fissile material under the nexus between state and non-state actors constitutes the biggest threat to peace.

“The biggest threat to peace and stability comes from active promotion of terrorism and the unbridled expansion of fissile material production and delivery systems for nuclear weapons under the shadow of a deeply disturbing and deeply entrenched nexus between state entities and non-state actors,” Siddhartha Nath, Counsellor, Conference on Disarmament, Geneva, said, mentioned PTI.

Ambassador Tehmina Janjua, Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the Conference on Disarmament said that Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in his last meeting in the general assembly showed his readiness to agree to a treaty with India on a ban on the tests of nuclear weapons.

Janjua also added that stability in South Asia including Jammu and Kashmir cannot be achieved unless this treaty is agreed upon and that the response to this proposal is being awaited for the benefit of all.

According to PTI, Nath responded through the Right of Reply, saying that “it is ironic that a country whose non-proliferation track record is marked by obstructionism seeks to convince the international community of its self-serving proposals.”

“It is a matter of record that Pakistan is singularly responsible for blocking the international disarmament agenda and the Conference on Disarmament,” he said. Pakistan inquired on why India did not respond to their proposal of a bilateral agreement.

Allegedly, India had broken this treaty in 1974 and diverted reactors which were to be used for peace. Pakistan has been continually urging to an agreement with India on this and to keep south Asia away from the nuclear weapons.

Advent of Biden Presidency with its resonating calls of 'America is back', 'we will repair our alliances' and 'will engage with the world once again' on one hand and the rise of President Xi Jinping with a stronger hold on China after the Plenary session of the 19th Central Committee of CPC, on the other, have got strategic analysts to examine if a new Cold War was already on the horizon.
