Significance Of Nuclear Information Sharing In South Asia


Regional competitive environment of South Asia has fueled the strategic tension and security anxieties between India and Pakistan. Both countries share a history of hostile relations which have been strained by a number of historical and political issues. Due to prioritization of security concerns of regional states, South Asia is undergoing a nuclear and conventional arms modernization.

However, the inception of nuclear weapons in South Asia has not only maintained the deterrence stability in region but at the same time instigated the nuclear and missile arms race in the region. Thus under such circumstances, in the aftermath of Indian and Pakistan’s nuclear tests in1998, Pakistan proposed the establishment of Strategic Restraint Regime (SRR) to India for durable peace in South Asia.
