Pakistan: "We are ready to reduce our nuclear potential, but only after India ..."

18
Pakistan is discussing the possibility of reducing nuclear arsenals. At the same time, state authorities say that official Islamabad will never go for unilateral reduction of nuclear warheads. According to the official representatives of the government of Pakistan, the reduction can be carried out in the only case: if neighboring India takes the same steps.


Adviser to the head of the Pakistani government, Sartaj Aziz, who is referred to by TASS, says that the probability of reducing nuclear arsenals is in fact very small. According to him, "it's all about India." Aziz claims that India "will not go to reducing the number of nuclear warheads," adding that the Pakistani nuclear program is "only a deterrent in the region."

TASS quotes a Pakistani official:
India is increasing its nuclear arsenal much faster than we do. And the concept of containment is dynamic. Deterrence must be effective. The focus of our containment is India. Unfortunately, we have no other option to maintain an effective arsenal of deterrence.


Pakistan: "We are ready to reduce our nuclear potential, but only after India ..."


The possibility of reducing the number of nuclear warheads by Pakistan was referred to during the visit of Pakistani military officials to the United States.

At the same time, the issue of striking the United States by US drones was also discussed. Recently, a representative of the country's Defense Ministry, who expressed stormy indignation on this issue, now states that "the number of strikes inflicted on Pakistani territory by US drones has decreased significantly." Sartaj Aziz added that Islamabad had previously expressed dissatisfaction, because it considered it a violation of sovereignty. The United States declared that there are terrorist training camps in Pakistan. And these camps Pakistan, as Aziz says, "almost completely destroyed." Apparently, now with the sovereignty they have everything in order ...

        "More recently, the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the country, who has expressed violent indignation about this, now ..." begs the gentleman to put him on again, and again, and again ...

          A competent approach and this is not a complete destruction, but a mutual reduction.

      I agree with you, if Pakistan and India didn’t have nuclear weapons, they would have mated long ago.

      As the saying goes: Ivan nods at Peter, and Peter at Ivan. If you really look at the state of things, then Pakistan and India will not reduce their nuclear capabilities, they are already used to them.

    And in Pakistan, exactly do they own nuclear weapons? And wouldn’t it be that from Pakistan, nuclear weapons will be transferred to the Saudis, and from them to terrorists?

    And India is ready to reduce its nuclear potential after China. China after the USA. USA after Russia .... And so in a vicious circle.

    It is unlikely that the peacekeeping impulse of the leaders of Pakistan led them to such statements. Most likely, there are problems in maintaining the arsenal in a state of combat readiness, protection, and large expenses for the entire complex. They gave the toy, but it was forbidden to play pranks with it.
    Well, quite a conspiracy theological version. The balance with the bulldo ceased to converge in terms of the number of charges (whether it was sold or it was sold ...). Now we need to somehow get out, so as not to be the most last (while Kim’s grandson is on this step of the podium).
