Nuclear test ban body offers India ‘observer’ status


The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) has offered India an “Observer” status and access to International Monitoring System (IMS) data.

Addressing a group of Indian journalists at CTBTO headquarters in Vienna Austria, Executive Secretary Lassina Zerbo said, “I’m not asking India to ratify (the treaty)…I know that is not possible now…but I think giving India the opportunity to join as an observer could be a good starting point.”

CTBTO runs International Monitoring System (IMS) that constantly monitors the planet for nuclear explosions and shares findings with its member states. At present, IMS has 337 facilities, located in 89 countries.
