Pak PM’s threat to India : We have short-range nuclear weapons

New York, Sep 21 : Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Wednesday said that the country has access to short-range nuclear weapons and will use it to counter the Indian Army.

“We have developed short-range nuclear weapons as a counter to the Cold Start doctrine that India has developed. Again, those are in the same command-and-control authority that controls the other strategic weapons,” he said at the Council on Foreign Relations, a top American think-tank.

Abbasi’s declaration comes amid North Korea’s escalating threats of nuclear warfare, which has been condemned by leaders across the world.

 But Abbasi claimed that Pakistan’s nuclear arsenals are safe and secure.

“We have a very robust and secure command-and-control system over our strategic nuclear assets. Time has proved that it’s a process that is very secure. It’s a process that has complete civilian oversight through the NCA,” he said.

He further added that the command-and-control systems are as secure as anybody else’s in the world.

“The last 20 years are testament to that,” Abbasi said in response to another question.
