外文标题：China making N-reactor copies to sell to Pakistan
NEW DELHI: China will be able to sidestep global nuclear commerce rules when it sells its third generation nuclear reactors to Pakistan, making its sale a win-win deal for both countries.
China has reverse-engineered Westinghouse's AP-1000 reactor to build an indigenous reactor, which, officials said, is a clever copy of the original. With Pakistani nuclear officials travelling several times this year to China as they work on a contract, the "indigenized" Chinese reactor will help Beijing overcome a key objection by the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) that forbids sale of nuclear reactors or components to third countries without NSG approval and without an NPT signature.
The Chinese reactors in Pakistan will be under IAEA safeguards that make them safer and lesser cause for worry in India. But Indian officials are much more concerned about nuclear weapons and missiles that China is reportedly helping Pakistan with. That, senior Indian officials say, is a greater cause for concern.
China has not yet tested the design of its indigenized reactor but this is the one that will be sold to Pakistan, scheduled to be installed in Karachi. According to sources here, China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) has claimed it has indigenously designed and developed a third-generation nuclear power reactor which they have named as the Advanced China Pressurised (ACP)-1000. China has reportedly indigenized most of the reactor components, which will be sold to Pakistan bypassing NSG requirements, under a grandfathering clause.
Can't UN and other nations which has signed NPT make USA and Westinghouse company as a jointly responsible for this act? Isn't US and Westinghouse responsible for their technology being miss-used by China and shared with a Rough state sponsored terror country?

Certainly these Chinese reactors will blast off in future and it will not only destroy Pakistan but a quarter of India also . This will be a win-win situation for China because one proclaimed enemy India and other hidden enemy Islamists Pakistan both will bite the dust by a single Chinese spark ?

The first AP1000 reactor is being building in China. There is no such "reverse engineering". AP1000 was based on Westinghouse's AP600 and It took 15 years to finish the project. Chinese are a part of the project. Later, westinghouse granted rights to China.

China is doing business and creating allies y this. The Russian Reactors at Kudankulam even after two years as it has many problems. The DAE is silent on this.

Meanwhile India has shot itself in the foot by attaching a liability clause that is preventing foreign suppliers from selling nuclear reactors to India. Good Job India!!!

It is not at surprising because China's thriving economy is totally based on copying!! But at the same time one has to admit that they make it cheaper both money wise and otherwise!! They are the present duplicating masters of the world! They steal the technical knowhow from other countries, who spent billions in development, and covert it as their own product, which the Japanese used to do before. So, the bottom line is that unless you are a thief, you can't be a economic super power!!!

Lol. "...unless you are a thief, you can't be a economic super power". India is the best example of your statement. It means that India will remain economically poor forever, agree?

It does not make any difference to India as Pakistan has already got enough nuclear weapons and delivery system specifically for Indian targets. In case of any nuclear war both countries can destroy each other with the existing weapons.

China makes things cheap. Quality of these goods is cheaper. That is the catch. China has found a way to circumvent rules and regulations. Good for them

seems like all the talk on pakistan acquiring nuclear weapons is a waste of time. By the looks of it, they are going to nuke themselves buying untested nuclear reactors which comes with a 6 month warranty.. hmm .. and what happens after that is anybody's guess. Not that I don't buy made in china items. I need to wish them good luck as soon as possible. It may not be possible later.

How insecure is India. Pakistan and china are two independent states doing mutually beneficial business with each other. India need not lose sleep over this if it does have options to counter this. Why bother when you can't do anything about it.

I hope the reactor is placed far away from Indian borders so that explosion does not affect Indian soil.
