Read Nuclear Suppliers Group’s Public Statement on Seoul Plenary Meeting

The twenty-sixth Plenary Meeting of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) 1 , chaired by
Ambassador Song Young-wan of the Republic of Korea, was held in Seoul, Korea, on 23 and 24
June 2016.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea, H.E. Yun Byung-se, welcomed the
Participating Governments on behalf of the Korean Government, reaffirmed his country’s strong
support for NSG activities and noted the significant contribution of the NSG to global efforts to
counter ever evolving nuclear threats, thus substantially reinforcing the spirit and purposes of the
Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). The Foreign Minister also
highlighted the importance of the thorough implementation of UNSCR 2270 (2016) for the
resolution of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) nuclear issue and asked the
NSG to continue its efforts to cut off the DPRK’s access to its nuclear program’s supply chain.
Within the framework of the NSG’s mandate, the Group expressed its concerns regarding
continued global proliferation activities and reaffirmed its determination to continue to cooperate
closely in order to deter, hinder and prevent the transfer of controlled items or technology that
could contribute to nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices. Participating
Governments reiterated their firm support for the full, complete and effective implementation of
the NPT as the cornerstone of the international non-proliferation regime.
Deploring the nuclear test conducted on 6 January 2016 by the DPRK, the Participating
Governments reconfirmed their commitment to UNSCRs 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013),
2094 (2013) and 2270 (2016) which strongly condemned the DPRK’s challenge to the nuclear
non-proliferation regime and underlined that export of all controlled items within the NSG to the
DPRK is prohibited according to the abovementioned resolutions.
The NSG welcomed the announcement on 16 January 2016 of the Implementation Day of the
Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Following up on the Extraordinary Plenary held
on 21 January and 26 April this year, the NSG expressed interest in continuing to be briefed by
the Procurement Working Group coordinator on the procurement channel established under the
JCPOA and UNSCR 2231 (2015) as appropriate. The NSG agreed to keep this under active consideration.
Participating Governments called upon all States to exercise vigilance and to ensure effective implementation of all UNSCRs relevant to the work and purposes of the NSG.

• discussed and reaffirmed  the importance of balancing confidentiality with transparency in NSG activities; and the significance of updating the NSG Guidelines to keep pace with the evolving global security landscape and a fast-paced nuclear and nuclear-related industry.
• welcomed the growing number of States that have harmonized their national export control systems with the NSG Guidelines and Control lists;
• discussed options for enhancing outreach such as dedicated briefings for and meetings with interested non-NSG partners on the work of the Group;  increased visibility of the NSG at appropriate international meetings to improve public awareness about the work and mission of the Group; and a dedicated response to non-NSG partners seeking assistance and practical experience in developing, updating, strengthening and implementing national export control systems; and
• shared information on all aspects of the 2008 Statement on Civil Nuclear Cooperation with India and discussed the NSG relationship with India.
The NSG Plenary invited all nuclear supplier states to express their responsible approach to nuclear exports by adhering to the NSG Guidelines.

How to Mitigate the Toxicity Level in Human Body?

The rapid urbanization and its shortcuts lifestyle have sharply hiked the toxicity level in Human Body thus created a situation where natural equilibrium gifted by Nature has been badly disturbed. The immune system of body comes under great stress as all systems provided in Human body have to work out of their capacities to keep the body moving.
Before we know how to mitigate the toxicity level in Human Body lets Know how our body gets these and which are the body parts/systems responsible for the same. To know my query I met Dr. P D. Gupta, a Ambala Based allopath doctor who has the successfully treated thousands Thyroid Eye Diseases (TED) patients by his naturopathy researches explained me the science behind this aspect of our human body.
There are three body systems through which a Human Body can intake Pesticides/ Insecticides/ Air pollution.
1.    Mouth( Digestive system)
2.    Lungs ( Respiratory  system)
3.    Skin ( Sensory System)
Also, there are Three systems through which Human Body tends to get rid of unwanted toxicity to keep natural equilibrium among all systems present in our body to work as a unit.
1.    Kidneys, Liver, Skin (Excretory system)
2.    Lungs, Nose (Respiratory System)
3.    Digestive system
The first defence against toxicity is that we can keep check over these three doors of our body by avoiding Pesticides/ Insecticides injected food, polluted air and not touching toxic substances.
The second guard against toxicity is regular cleansing of organs/systems responsible for getting out toxicity from our body like Kidneys, Liver, Skin (Excretory system), Lungs, Nose (Respiratory System) and (Digestive system).
First protection is a open fact can be drawn but not beneficial in case our body already has got diseases out of the over toxicity, as in present scenario most of us have past the stage of first defence thus we have left with option to know about the ways to get toxicity by cleansing the systems that only through natural ways not by medication as it will additionally burden our body with extra toxicity.
The million dollars question is what the practical ways for cleansing the organs/systems responsible for getting out toxicity from our body and how regular it could be done and under whose recommendation?
That in next blog I will explain how Dr. Gupta has opened my eyes by taking me into deep in human body science and its natural ways to keep itself in balance, before I can understand the concept behind the ways to clean the systems responsible for removing toxicity from the human body.

Free Access to Fair Justice Guarantees Rule of Law

Free Access to Fair Justice is a basic principle of the rule of law. In the absence of access to justice, people are unable to have their voice heard, exercise their rights, challenge discrimination or hold decision-makers accountable.
The Rule of Law emphasizes the right of equal access to justice for all, including members of vulnerable groups; Delivery of justice should be impartial and non-discriminatory. The independence of the judicial system, together with its impartiality and integrity, as an essential prerequisite for upholding the rule of law and ensuring that there is no discrimination in the administration of justice .

One of the major obstacles in accessing justice is the cost of legal advice and representation. Legal aid programmes are a central component of strategies to enhance access to justice but in India lack of funds and absence quality of Legal professionals for want of professional fee are hampering the real objectives of right of equal access to justice for all.

Rule of Law: The Fundamental Prerequisite for Developed India

The Constitution of India guarantees "Rule of Law" on one side and discretion in the interest of Public Interest/National Interest other side. Past experiences of 67 years of  democratic rule in India has unambiguously established that authorities occupying various thrones under Indian democratic system are more interested in delivering services to citizens as matter of their discretion not as  "Rule of Law" asks them to delivered the same as matter of right of citizens.

That's why we as Nation is still deprived of status of "Developed Nation" even after passage of 67 years of independence from British colonial rule, contrary to the fact that countries who had experienced freedom long after India have developed as Nation

The rule of law and development are strongly interrelated and mutually reinforcing, that the advancement of the rule of law at the national and international levels is essential for sustained and inclusive economic growth, sustainable development, the eradication of poverty and hunger and the full realization of all human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the right to development, all of which in turn reinforce the rule of law, and for this reason we should work for this interrelationship of Rule of Law based development.
