In a startling revelation, Pakistan’s 70-90 strong nuclear weapons with smart delivery systems are aimed primarily at India.
Robert Norris of the Natural Resources Defense Council and Hans Kristensen of the Federation of American Scientists, in a paper written for the Bulletin for Atomic Scientists, say Pakistan is busily enhancing its capabilities with new nuclear-capable ballistic missiles and two nuclear capable cruise missiles.
Two new plutonium production reactors and a second chemical separation facility are under construction. Pakistan is preparing nuclear-capable cruise missiles to deliver nuclear warheads using plutonium.
Kristensen said Pakistan’s weapons and deliver-systems can be assumed to be India-specific because Islamabad has not declared any other adversary.
