  • Description

    Indian Prime Minister Morarji Desai said in New Delhi on Thursday (12 January) that India would accept international inspection of its atomic plants if the three big nuclear powers, the United States, the Soviet Union and Britain, stopped testing and started phasing out their nuclear weapons. His comments followed recent talks about safeguards for India's nuclear installations with President Jimmy Carter and British Prime Minister James Calleghan. India exploded a nuclear device in 1974, but Mr Desai has said India would not conduct further explosions. He does not want India to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty because he believes it discriminates against his country.
