CTBT Debate ACHIN VANAIK s article on the CTBT debate (August 24-31) was an informative and comprehensive review of the Indian stand on CTBT and nuclear disarmament and the contrast between Indian and Japanese stands on these issues.

Vanaik is right in stating that Japan like India has its own border issues and despite those it has been advocating nuclear disarmament and CTBT whereas India has refused to sign the CTBT due to 'security reasons'.
