Druk Yul above ground nuclear test ban.

Following the fiasco over the Keeling islands and after a long discussion among the high command with King Wangchuck. The King has proclaimed a moratorium on all above ground nuclear tests until the procedures can be reviewed and updated. The last above ground test performed was on a much lower yield device and after the recent troubles demonstrated by the last test he has deemed it wise to postpone any additional testing until the processes by which the testing is performed can be reviewed. Testing will continue underground or in space. There are plans to detonate a weapon at 50 km above the surface on the far side of the moon where measurements can be taken by the lunar base and any fallout would simply disperse into space.

 

It is hoped this measure will ease the world's concerns of the dangers of nuclear testing on the surface of the planet. King Wangchuck observed, "Our scientists really wanted the opportunity to observe the weapons effect in an aquatic environment, but have opted instead to possibly send commercial crews to Bikini Atol where past testing has been performed rather than have a new test. This moratorium will be unilateral. No other nation is required to observe it, but given the general feeling people have towards the weapons after Europe, I think any government would be wise to institute one, especially after the strong reaction we have had to the most recent tests."

"That has always been our goal. The prior head of Atomic Research has been dismissed and a more politically and geographically sensitive individual of some renown in our communities has been appointed. Professor Xi Chin of Shangri La's Aerostat Industries. It cost us quite a bit of money to hire him away from his private employer. He's en-route to Bikini. He believes we can learn what we need there without any additional testing at all. We are taking action within SEATO to establish a regional responsibility clause for nuclear testing in the region. It appears to have significant support and we're happy Romania has re-established relations. Good things will come of the incident. As King, this I swear." - Wangchuck

"We're glad Vedran brought that up. We actually intend to use it to target an asteroid. One we're going to tow into orbit of the moon. The objective is to test safe distance detonation for deflection that won't disintegrate an incoming body, resulting in the 'shotgun' effect."
