    India’s Role in the Hague Nuclear Security Summit
    P.R. Chari March 18, 2014

    So far, the Nuclear Security Summits have proved unable to break through India’s penchant for secrecy on what it considers to be matters of national security, so the country’s nuclear security arrangements remain somewhat opaque.

    Preventing Nuclear War in South Asia: Unprecedented Challenges, Unprecedented Solutions
    George Perkovich November 8, 2013 Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs

    The Indian tradition of strategic nonviolence, however imperfect, is less risky and more conducive to long-term success than a militaristic strategy to counter terrorism in a nuclearized environment.

    Don't Blame It on China
    C. Raja Mohan October 17, 2013 Indian Express

    Unless Delhi brings greater clarity to the interpretation of the nuclear liability act and the regulations for its implementation, India's hopes of building an advanced nuclear power industry at home and exporting nuclear reactors and services around the world will come to naught.

    Ashley J. Tellis October 2, 2013 National Bureau of Asian Research

    Although the emergence of new nuclear powers in the post–Cold War era has triggered fears of widespread nuclear proliferation and renewed calls for nuclear abolition, the pursuit and development of nuclear weapons in Asia are likely to only increase in the years ahead.

    How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Nonproliferation
    George Perkovich July 10, 2011 BloggingHeads TV

    The realization that both the United States and the Soviet Union shared an interest in preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons led to a 1968 agreement that existing nuclear weapons states would work toward nuclear zero if other states agreed not to develop nuclear weapons.

    James Collins, Dimitri Simes October 12, 2009 Bloggingheads.tv

    U.S., India Advance Nuclear Trade Deal
    Ashley J. Tellis July 9, 2008 NPR's Morning Edition

    Behind the scenes at the G-8 summit, U.S. and Indian officials appear to be moving forward on an agreement that would lift the U.S. ban on nuclear trade with India and allow it to assist India’s civilian nuclear program. Ashley Tellis discusses the details of the deal on NPR’s Morning Edition and notes that it is unlikely to make India a closer U.S. ally.

    India The Abstainer
    Petr Topychkanov April 8, 2014

    The challenges New Delhi faces inside the country and along its borders do not allow it to fully support the Russian annexation of Crimea, since this would create a precedent that can be used against India’s own territorial integrity. However, India could not denounce Russia either, because it acted similarly four decades ago.

    War With Multiple Enemies in Afghanistan
    Petr Topychkanov February 21, 2014

    Today, many countries have to fight against terrorist organizations, which have roots in the Soviet war in Afghanistan. However, this lesson is still unlearned: in Syria, fighters under Islamic flags have gained support of several countries, but this support will recoil upon the supporters’ own heads.

    Indian Flag in Sochi
    Petr Topychkanov February 14, 2014

    The International Olympic Committee has lifted the suspension of the Indian Olympic team. The presence of the Indian athletes in the Olympics is important because Sochi is the place where even rivaling states, such as India and Pakistan, have to fairly and peacefully participate in the tournaments.

    Slump in South Asia?
    Petr Topychkanov January 31, 2014

    The slump of interest in South Asia in the West is a positive development, because it makes clearer which countries are the real partners of Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. Also, if left to themselves these three countries will get a chance to build their relations without external pressure.

    Petr Topychkanov January 24, 2014

    Pakistan is not an important Russian trading partner in South Asia. However, with Eurasian integration involving Central Asia and traditional Russian-Indian economic ties revived, there is no sense for Pakistan to remain in a limbo.
