India and the International Atomic Energy Agency
India is one of the founder members of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The sustained growth of its nuclear programme has accorded a unique distinction to India of being a developing country with strong foundations in advanced nuclear technology. This perspective of being a technologically advanced developing country has guided many of India's interactions on the IAEA platform.
