Sample text

It was, after all, well known that India and Pakistan had the capability to explode nuclear weapons. Adjusting to the fact that there are now seven established nuclear weapon states, where previously there were five, should not, and hopefully will not, traumatize the world community. Were events to develop favourably, a means might be found, for instance, for India and Pakistan to join the international non-proliferation regime, and assume the same obligations as fall on the nuclear weapon states under the NPT.

Social Bases of Conflicts Pugwash workshops and council meetings have, since 1992, recognized that almost all contemporary wars are civil wars, with roots in economic and political repression, racial and religious intolerance and inequitable access to natural resources. Most past recommendations have centered on the need for long-term "tolerance education" regarding sectarian differences (including the preparation of school curricula and textbooks), mechanisms for authorizing UN intervention in internal conflicts or to head off severe repression, and various inconclusive statements about migration.

Such commitments would be tantamount to behaving "as i f they were parties to the Treaty. Successful conclusion of an FMCT, involving full-scope safeguards also in the nuclear weapon states, would give India and Pakistan access to nuclear technologies on a par with states parties to the NPT. To reduce the risk of unauthorized use and war by misunderstanding or accident, all nuclear weapons should be taken off alert status. Another important step would be to take all warheads off the delivery vehicles and store them separately.
