Re: Minimum Nuclear Deterrence

Dear Mr. Musunuru,

We are a very poor country, in the sense that we have a lot of people who
are materially poor,  and we have very very severe budgetary and other
economic problems.   At the same time, pace most foreign opinions, we do
have genuine security interests which have been likely advanced by the
existence of the nuclear deterrent.    National interest needs to be guided
safely between these two dangers.


Subroto Roy.
