Pakistan ignores US calls for reducing nuke

  • Pakistani nuclear security authorities have rejected the growing pressure of U.S on Pakistan about production and deployment of battlefield nuclear weapons. The authorities declared that they are not apologetic about developing tactical nuclear weapons. Washington is satisfied with the steps taken by Pakistan to secure its nuclear arsenal but is definitely troubled by the country’s development in nuclear tactical weapons. These weapons by very nature pose security threats since there is no guarantee about their security while taken to the field.
