  • Description

    In India, Prime Minister Charan Singh has hit out at the nuclear non-proliferation policy in whose name smaller nations are forced to accept restraints and restrictions which nuclear powers do not tolerate. Addressing the opening session of the twenty-third International Atomic Energy Agency (I.A.E.A.) conference on Tuesday (4 December), Mr Singh went on to say he regretted that non-proliferation was such an abused term.

    SYNOPSIS: Delegates from eighty countries gathered in New Delhi to attend the twenty-third I.A.E.A. conference which is to review safeguards against nuclear proliferation.

    But the I.A.E.A. delegates voted to bar South Africa from the conference because of apartheid policies -- it was the first time in the twenty-two year history of the Vienna based agency that a member country had been prevented from taking part in its general conference. The conference was opened by Indian Prime Minister Charan Singh.
