The umbrella agreement for Cooperative Threat Reduction, originally created under the Nunn-Lugar Act, was an effective tool for preventing the flow of nuclear technologies and material following the collapse of the Soviet Union.

One candidate for the expansion of these programs, is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
