The existing NPT-based nuclear nonproliferation regime has not been able to bring the non-NPT nuclear possessor states into its folds thus making it difficult to universalize the nuclear nonproliferation norms. The shift from global to regional approaches and interdependent securitization priorities of India and Pakistan offer an incentive to negotiate a regional nonproliferation arrangement. This would not only help strengthen the global nonproliferation norms but could also provide formal recognition to the nuclear status of both India and Pakistan.
