South Asia News - Pakistan's nuclear weapons program - a rising threat
Pakistan, April 18: Ignoring the existing economic and security challenges, Pakistan continues to expand its nuclear arsenal. The country with 90-100 odd nuclear warheads is among the top five nuclear weapon states in the world. Even as the world's leading nuclear weapons countries have suspended production of fissile materials for new weapons and are negotiating cuts in their nuclear warheads, Pakistan is steadily building more nuclear weapons, adding production capacity to generate plutonium and enrich uranium. Pakistan's poor non-proliferation record is a cause of concern.
