Objective: Iran’s nuclear weapons program has the potential to undermine the existing but fragile nonproliferation regime while also posing a hurdle to an improved U.S.-India strategic partnership. To overcome these challenges, India could utilize its historic relations with Iran to curtail Iran’s nuclear ambitions. This alternative approach could ease India’s accommodation into the nonproliferation regime, moderate multilateral and unilateral sanctions, and prevent countries from resorting to military options.
