Pakistan's new nuke threat: Short-range missile designed to attack India, says Abbasi
Lahore : Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday threatened India by saying that they have created a short-range nuclear missile to target Indian Army.
Abbasi said: "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."
“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.
“So let there be no doubt that any extremist element or somebody like that can gain control of fissile material or a nuclear weapon. There is just no possibility of that. And it’s time-tested, and it’s a very secure system that has been put in place,” he added.
The threatening statement comes two days after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj sought investigations into North Korea’s nuclear proliferation links with Pakistan.
North Korea had been facing criticism all across the world for their recent nuclear tests.
