—Jaswant Singh, in an interview with The Times of India, July 24, 2000.

"India, particularly, welcomes the announcement of unilateral reductions by the US of nuclear forces, as an example. We also welcome moving away from the hair-trigger alerts associated with prevailing nuclear orthodoxies. India believes there is a strategic and technological inevitability in stepping away from a world that is held hostage by the doctrine of mad to a cooperative, defensive transition that is underpinned by further cuts and a de-alert of nuclear forces."
