Post 9/11, the United States and India overcame their traditional stances towards each other. Convergence of mutual interests in international politics, such as promoting democracy and fighting terrorism has led both countries to forge a strategic partnership. Collaboration extends across the economy, technology, and energy sectors and includes a controversial civil nuclear cooperation deal. Since the deal, India is now the only country that can trade in nuclear materials without being a signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty. As a result, critics of the 2005-2008 deal are most concerned with its likely impact on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and stability in South Asia. This paper analyzes the US-Indo nuclear cooperation deal present-day and its impact on military developments and deterrence stability in both Pakistan and South Asia.
