ABSTRACT
The article discusses an action at the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) in which attempts to preserve a core nuclear nonproliferation principle had emerged and the NSG exemption for India was decided. It claims that the NSG exemption for India represented a danger to the nuclear nonproliferation regime. It cites reasons to be wary of the decision which included squandered test ban treaty opportunity, violation of binding international rules, and selective nonproliferation.
