ABSTRACT
The article reports on the dispute between the United States and India regarding nuclear protection. The dispute between the two countries has not received much attention from the American media eventhough it is considered as one of the most important test of the antiproliferation policies of the American administration. The dispute between the countries started when the American administration wanted India to accept a comprehensive nuclear protection while the Indian government wanted to keep unprotected facilities to keep its weapons option open.
