Read the world reaction to India and Pakistans nuclear tests
Intesting.....


"Secretary General Kofi Annan deplored Pakistan's nuclear tests. "I deplore both the Indian and Pakistani tests. They exacerbate tension in an already difficult relationship." In a separate statement, Annan called on both sides to cease from "mutual accusations, which could further inflame the tense situation," and he repeated his call for both sides to sign the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty and to affirm a "no first use" pledge. In addition, Annan took the opportunity to reiterate the "availability of his good offices" as a neutral negotiation site.

The United Nations Security Council condemned Pakistan's five nuclear tests. "The council strongly deplores the underground nuclear tests conducted by Pakistan despite international calls for restraint," said a statement from Kenya's Njugumu Moses Mahugu, president of the 15-member council.
