4. Neighbors in Arms: The Pressler Amendment
Larry Pressler and Shashi Tharoor in conversation with John Elliott
India and Pakistan have been locked in a hostile embrace for decades. When President George W. Bush could not certify that Pakistan was not developing a nuclear weapon, Senator Larry Pressler advocated the Pressler Amendment in an attempt (that failed) to monitor and potentially restrict economic and military assistance to Pakistan. A fascinating session on a significant chapter in the history of global nuclear politics, revealing behind-the-scene deliberations between the United States and the neighbors in arms. Senator Pressler and author and Indian parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor in conversation with journalist John Elliott.
