Which among the following was founded in 1974 in response to the Indian nuclear test in Pokharan?
[B] International Atomic Energy Agency
[C] Nuclear Suppliers Group
[D] Nonproliferation for Global Security Foundation
Nuclear Suppliers Group was formed by seven countries viz. Canada, West Germany, France, Japan, the USSR, the United Kingdom, and the United States in response to the ‘Smiling Buddha’ (Pokharan-I) of India in 1974. It was clear from this adventure of India that certain non-weapons specific nuclear technology could be readily turned to weapons development, since it was alleged that India used the Canada sourced material to make bomb. The objective of the NSG was to reduce nuclear proliferation by controlling the export and re-transfer of materials that may be applicable to nuclear weapon development and by improving safeguards and protection on existing materials.
