ABSTRACT
The article discusses how countries can develop nuclear power minus nuclear weapons. Several diplomatic initiatives are available to combat nuclear proliferation. One is the inspection of nuclear power plants by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the objective being that no country can manufacture a nuclear bomb without abrogating the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Another is to institute a modified fuel cycle whereby weapons-grade materials can be made available only at well-inspected places. International pressure can also be exerted to countries which manufacture nuclear bombs.
