Military Review

It is reported that India has seized cargo destined for Pakistan’s nuclear industry from a Chinese ship

37

An article appeared on the website of the Observer Research Foundation, which tells about the incident with the detention of a Chinese ship bound for one of the Pakistani ports. The detention, according to the author of the material, an employee of the mentioned Pulkit Mohan Foundation, was carried out in February by Indian border guards in the customs port of Kandla.


According to the author of the article, Indian border guards acted on the basis of previously obtained intelligence information about the presence of “special cargo” on board. We are talking about the presence on board the cargo indicated in the nomenclature as an industrial autoclave. According to Indian intelligence, this cargo was a "dual-use autoclave."

It is alleged that the system delivered to Pakistan from China was intended for the development of the country's nuclear arsenal, for the nuclear military industry. As a result, the cargo was confiscated by the Indian side.

From the material:

This incident underscores the continued strong ties between China and Pakistan in the area. weapons mass destruction (WMD). It is well known that Pakistan’s nuclear program is not indigenous and that China plays an important role in developing and supporting the Pakistan nuclear weapons program.

It is noted that New Delhi is afraid of deepening Sino-Pakistani cooperation in the field of "military atom".

Now, allegedly, India is having problems with the detention of cargo delivered to Pakistan by a Chinese ship. In Beijing, they demanded clarification and immediate “release” of cargo.

From the article:

The removal requires an appropriate response from national security experts in India due to a clear violation of international standards. Given the rarity of such incidents, it is important that India investigate possible responses through several channels.
Falsifying information provided by China and Pakistan provides New Delhi with several opportunities to achieve this goal in an international context. In this situation, India may refer to the 2005 Law on Weapons of Mass Destruction and their delivery systems (prohibition of illegal activities).


It is noted that if India manages to substantiate its actions in the international arena, this will strengthen its position.

    Something of the state, as in the days of the pirates, lost both fear and conscience ...

    And a lesson for everyone - serious goods must be transported either on warships, or accompanied by warships.

      That is precisely why the Akademik Cherskiy pipe-layer goes to Europe accompanied by Russian warships. We have long had no illusions on this score.

        Yes, difficult times have come and accompanied with something more reliable. By the way, Academician Chersky should arrive in Kaliningrad at the end of April to complete repairs and modernization, and then should return to the Far East, where he will begin the construction of Sakhalin-3.

        I get the impression that our pipelayer goes this way not because he fears detention or provocation, but because he is a distraction for another operation.

    Somehow, it is hardly believed that a vessel with such equipment would call at an Indian port.

    It seems that India has decided to follow the Americans' way of "money isslinaidu" (c) and show its cool

      Well, yes it's not for long. China does not stand still. Ships build faster than anyone in the world.
      This privateering will cost the USA dearly. And India is dangerously "squeezed" between Pakistan and the PRC.

    On a specialized resource, like VO, it is still worth distinguishing between Ship and ship.
    If this autoclave really turns out to be used in the nuclear industry, China may have problems in the form of sanctions, this is a direct violation of the Convention on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. all the more so since half the world is now claiming to the Chinese for the virus, now they only need a suitable excuse.

        Pakistan has not signed a nuclear non-proliferation treaty
        (India, Israel, Pakistan, South Sudan and North Korea did not sign, which signed and then left), and China, like the rest of the world, signed.
        This means that they cannot have any cooperation in the field of nuclear energy and especially nuclear weapons with those who have not signed the treaty, this will be a direct violation of the NPT treaty.

            Despite its name, the NPT regulates not only the military, but also the peaceful use of atomic energy.
            Articles 3 and 4, for example, describe the cooperation of parties to a contract

                The object of regulation of the NPT is the nuclear activities of all parties to the treaty.
                Therefore, the problem concerns precisely China, as a participant.

                    China is a party to the NPT, and all its relations with anyone in the nuclear field are regulated by the NPT.

    Pakistan is friends with China against India, the United States kisses India, bearing in mind China's desire to dominate Asia. Europe is impotent and does not play an independent role. The Middle East is pregnant with a war of all against all. There is a possibility that Russia will be swept for the first time by a universal sheer, we have all have equal relations and there is no global contradiction with anyone, and no one wants to have such an enemy. Perhaps at the exit from the crisis we will take a worthy place in the global world, for the first time without blood. .

    And why the hell did a Chinese ship with equipment for the Pakistani nuclear industry go to India? The Indians did not capture it in neutral waters. I thought that only a Russian tanker could go to the Ukrainian port. And it turns out that there are other "smart" ones.

    According to the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property "Rospatent", any autoclave is a dual-use product. You just need to attach a coil to it.

    The point there is different. China has historically blocked India's accession to the NSG (Nuclear Suppliers Group or NSG in English). I have never heard of any "dual-use" autoclaves, perhaps we are talking about the so-called. "hot cells"?

        We had an agreement between the USSR and India, of the year 1988. Nothing prevented us from delivering to India; all these limitations of the NSG did not apply to the old agreements.
        In principle, there has long been a proposal to accept India and Pakistan into the NSG, but they cannot agree on the order of entry.
