New York (USA), Sep 27 (ANI): Foreign Secretary of India, Harsh Vardhan Shringla in a UNSC meeting stated that the country is committed to goal of nuclear weapons free world. “India is committed to goal of nuclear weapons free world and complete elimination of nuclear weapons, consistent with highest priority accorded to nuclear disarmament by Final Document of 1st Special Session of UNGA on Disarmament (SSOD-I). We believe that this goal can be achieved through a step-by-step process underwritten by a universal commitment and an agreed global and non-discriminatory multilateral framework,” said Harsh Vardhan Shringla. “India had participated in the negotiations of the draft CTBT in the Conference on Disarmament. But, India could not join the Treaty as the Treaty did not address a number of core concerns raised by India. India maintains a voluntary, unilateral moratorium on nuclear explosive testing,” he added.
