      On the other side, the USSR/Russia got nukes in through multiple spy rings in the U.S. and Britain. Then came the Chinese in , with help from the Russians. After the war between India and China, the Chinese helped Pakistan, India’s enemy, develop nukes.   The Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty has mostly succeeded in keeping more countries out of the nuclear club. But as U.S. alliances fray, its future success is not assured.

      "We are working with Russia right now on a non-proliferation agreement, nuclear non-proliferation. If we get something like that, it would be great," the US president said on .   Last month, the United States withdrew from a landmark missile treaty with Russia. Another crucial arms control treaty, the New START agreement, is set to expire in early China and several other countries with nuclear weapons, unconstrained by any treaty commitments, have been building up their arsenals.

      The landmark treaty is the only remaining pillar of the global nuclear-proliferation system after the US dismantled two key arms control pacts, withdrawing from the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty in and quitting the Intermediate-Range Nuclear .   Washington D.C., Ap - The NPT is appropriately acknowledged as a critical means of protecting global security against the danger of unchecked nuclear proliferation. But the treaty has had its detractors – and not just among rogue states but governments in good international standing – as a new posting of declassified documents from the nongovernmental National Security Archive.
