The article focuses on the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons which is an international treaty, opened for signature on July 1, 1968 to limit the spread of nuclear weapons. The agreement signed between the U.S. and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics seemed to be best suited for the two countries alone. Other countries are in hesitation to sign the agreement because genuine grievances which could not be ignored. In India, as well as many others, public opinion is so much in favor of going nuclear. One reason is that these countries have been spending a considerable proportion of their national income on the development of a nuclear potential. Thus, experts doubt that these countries would sign the same agreement.
