INDIA, U.K. CLASH AT MEET­ING ON DIS­AR­MA­MENT

Deccan Chronicle - - OPED -

GENEVA, OCT. 12. India and Bri­tain clashed at yes­ter­day’s ses­sion of the Geneva dis­ar­ma­ment con­fer­ence here on the mean­ing of the term non-pro­lif­er­a­tion.

The Bri­tish del­e­gate, Mr. Fred Mul­ley, joined Gen­eral E.L.M. Burns of Canada, who spoke last week, in re­ject­ing India’s con­tention that it in­cluded a cut-off in nu­clear weapons pro­duc­tion by the nu­clear pow­ers.

The del­e­gate said the whole de­bate on non-pro­lif­er­a­tion had pro­ceeded on the ba­sis that to pre­vent the pro­lif­er­a­tion of nu­clear weapons is to stop an in­crease in the num­ber of States pos­sess­ing them. — Reuter.
