India welcomes bush call for tighter nuke control
New Delhi: India on Thursday welcomed US President George Bush's call for limiting nuclear technology to only those countries that forswear atomic weapons and the need for an intensive global effort to stop a nuclear black market. "President Bush's statement of February 11 addresses major proliferation threats, which concern the entire international community. We welcome his emphasis on the imperative of collective action to check WMD proliferation. It is clear that the existing non-proliferation order is inadequate. Recent examples have shown that non-proliferation obligations have not always been treated with adequate seriousness. We believe that meeting new proliferation challenges requires fresh approaches, pooling together the efforts and resources of the international community," Navtej Sarna, spokesperson of foreign ministry, told a news briefing in the capital.
