Bush proposed accelerating and expanding the development and deployment of the system and called for the ABM treaty to be replaced by a new "framework" that would permit such defenses. India has 14 small nuclear power reactors in commercial operation, two larger ones under construction, and ten more planned.

    Both use local uranium, as India does not import any nuclear fuel. Another objective of the book is to expose students and practitioners of nuclear security to some of the fundamental disciplines of their craft and provide an understanding of the unique challenges that arise when we apply these fundamentals to specific real-world problems. The treaty prohibits all nuclear testing, establishes a worldwide network of monitoring stations, and allows for inspections of suspicious sites. This heightened concerns regarding an arms race between them, with Pakistan involving the People's Republic of Chinaan acknowledged nuclear weapons state.

    In the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union reached the Moscow Agreement, which banned testing in the atmosphere, in outer space, and underwater. NNSA also maintains a capability to respond quickly in case material needs to be removed from a country of concern. All rights reserved.
