‘EU aware of nuclear material proliferation incident in India’

‘EU aware of nuclear material proliferation incident in India:’ Geo News, Peter Stano, Khalid Hameed Farooqi, 7 June 21,

The European Union is aware of the nuclear material proliferation incident in India, Peter Stano, the lead spokesperson for the External Affairs of the European Union has said during an interview with Geo News.

“All we can say at the moment is that the EU is aware of the information and understands that the Indian authorities are investigating,” he said when asked whether nuclear proliferation could pose a serious threat to international peace and security. 

When asked whether the EU had taken notice of these incidents and raised them with India, and what are the assurances which the EU has received to stop the proliferation of nuclear materials, Stano said that at the moment, investigations are underway. 

The South Asian region, in particular, and the world, in general, is concerned about international peace and security as the current incidents in India indicate the presence of a nuclear black market there.

It should be noted that India has been able to acquire large reserves of nuclear material under the auspices of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) — a multilateral export control regime and a group of nuclear supplier countries that seek to prevent nuclear proliferation.

According to an Indian newspaper report, two persons have been arrested in India on charges of illegal possession of seven kilogrammes of natural uranium. 

This is not the first case of its kind in the country, as last week, a similar incident was reported which raises the question of Indian nuclear plants’ security being compromised.


Similarly, the continuation of these events is also an indication of the presence of nuclear and radioactive substances in India.
