In 1958 the United States and the United Kingdom penned the Mutual Defense Agreement. The accord allows the two countries to swap anything pertaining to nuclear weapons short of the weapons themselves.

The problem with the accord is the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty explicitly outlines in Article 1 the outlawing of transferring of nuclear devices directly or indirectly. This could also lead to violations of Article 6 which promises nuclear disarmament

The facts that in 2002 300 scientists from the UK visited nuclear sites in the US and 485 scientists from the US visited the UK. There are also 16 joint working groups between the US and the UK, nuclear materials, warhead accidents, and terrorist nuclear threat response.

transferring of nuclear devices directly or indirectly, wouldnt that imply transferring via a 3rd party, like a corporation or country or giving parts of such device, i mean how is studying reactors and research and such considered transferring a nuclear device?
