India, Pakistan renew nuclear test ban

New Delhi: India and Pakistan renewed a ban on nuclear tests on Sunday and agreed to set up a hotline between their foreign ministries after unprecedented talks on reducing the risk of nuclear war on the subcontinent. During two days of meetings both sides also agreed to work on formalising arrangements to notify each other before missile tests. "Each side reaffirmed its unilateral moratorium on conducting further nuclear test explosions unless, in exercise of national sovereignty, it decides that extraordinary events have jeopardised its supreme interests," Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Navtej Sarna read out from a joint statement.
