    Under what conditions would India give up its nuclear arms?

    Is this a case of left hand not knowing what right hand is doing in GOI?

    What does your post even mean? What are you trying to say? How is the phrase 'global nuclear disarmament' so difficult to understand?

    It is a consistent view of India right from the beginning. It stands for a universal disarmament of nuclear weapons. As Lurker pointed out, India will give up nukes when all agree to give up nukes.

    If you check the history of nuke development, US developed nukes first followed by Britain. Then USSR developed nukes to counter US & Britain. Then France developed nukes to counter USSR. Then China developed nukes to counter Russia. Then India developed nukes to counter China. Then Pakistan developed nukes to counter India and so on and so forth. If we have to undo all of this, then disarmament should happen concomitantly.

    I mean to ask, is this a legitimate effort by the GOI? How does the Indian military establishment view such efforts?
    External Affairs Minister (how important is he?)...Outreach...informal group...celebrating a birthday...blah de blah... All sounds meaningless to me.

    This statement I think was made to convince Australians to sell uranium to India.

    Countries after spending Billions not only to make these stuff but to protect and counter it.........build thousands of km of underground tunnels, nuclear submarines and even delivering speeches like "we will eat grass......":D you no longer want to have them?:confused:

    Its a weapon which will prevent major wars.

    Its a weapon which can kill the attacker, indirectly through side-effects. And if chain reaction of nations attacking their enemies start, it will definitely destroy all living beings except cockroaches. :lol:
