Commendable Position

New Zealand’s refusal to approve of a nuclear deal between India and the United States has been praised in a New York Times editorial. Headed “Let’s hear it for New Zealand”, the newspaper writes: “If you are feeling anxious – and you should be – about the world’s appetite for nuclear weapons, there is a bit of good news. More countries than we ever expected are refusing to be pressured by the United States and India to approve an ill-conceived nuclear deal … We hope this  admirable band – led by New Zealand, Ireland, Austria, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland – continues to stand firm when the nuclear group meets again this week.”
