According to WikiLeaks, Prime Minister Mrs Gandhi had said in the Parliament after the May 1974 nuclear tests that she had written a letter to her Pakistani counterpart, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, that India conducted nuclear test for bringing peace and prosperity in the country.

Indira had also said that New Delhi would be ready to share the relevant technology with Islamabad under certain conditions, said the WikiLeaks dispatches. In fact, Indira wanted to clarify that nuclear tests were not meant for creating geo-political disturbance in the sub-continent, mentioned the US cable.

However, Bhutto turned down Indira Gandhi’s offer saying that India didn’t stand by its promises, informed the transparency watchdog. Bhutto had termed India’s nuclear test as nuclear attack, said the WikiLeaks.

In show of strength, Pakistan conducted nuclear tests for the first time in May, 1998 soon after India’s second nuke tests at Pokhran in Rajasthan during the regime of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The cable said that Indira Gandhi wanted to prove that India could become a legitimate nuclear supplier by conducting nuclear tests.
