Till now China has been hailing the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT) as the cornerstone of the global non-proliferation regime.

India not signing the NTP treaty was also one of the major objection which raised for blocking India’s entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

 

China wanted India’s to sign NPT before they joined NSG as it would have weakened “the international non-proliferation regime” if NSG had a non-signatory in the group.

It has now been found that Beijing itself has violated the consensus that NSG arrived on during the 2010 review conference.

Report about China breaching the supplying nuclear reactors to Pakistan comes from none other than Arms Control Association, which is one of leading authorities on nuclear weapons and disarmament.

Giving details, the report states that China’s 2013 deal for the Chashma-3 reactor in Pakistan contradicted the consensus document that it signed during 2010 NPT Review Conference as Pakistan is not under IAEA safeguards.

The review had reaffirmed that under new supply arrangements for the transfer of nuclear materials and technology, the recipient needed to accept “IAEA full-scope safeguards”.

The IAEA safeguard is an international legally-binding commitment that binds the recipient from acquiring nuclear weapons and Islamabad has still not accepted this.
