This chapter explores the Nuclear Proliferation Cases of “Emerging Powers” of India and Pakistan. The chapter presents case studies of two developing and neighbor countries known to have nuclear weapons, India and Pakistan, who have never declared its nuclear capability. Against the premise of a mutual suspicion and hostility, nuclear weapons found its way to the South East and aided directly or indirectly by western nuclear powers. The principal question of this chapter seeks to answer is: what is the level of technological capability and the motivation behind these states’ decision to develop nuclear weapons? The argument made here is that many factors impacted upon their nuclear weapons decisions. Overall, the two countries show international dimensions and collaboration with one or more of the established five nuclear states—both in the development of their nuclear complex and in the development of its motivations.
