GOIN NUKE: 25 nuclear countries could become nuclear in future as Non-Proliferation Treaty fails Strobe Talbott, president of the Brookings Institution, says if the unraveling of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty continues, it may be because of the Indian exception to the NPT and could lead to the development of 25 nuclear states. He notes that five countries with nuclear weapons were grandfathered into the treaty. US, UK, Russia, France, China. Now there are nine. Add India, Pakistan, N. Korea, and Israel.
