Pakistani Minister warns India of counter nuclear threat of tactical weapons
NANKANA SAHIB: Pakistani Minister warns India of counter nuclear threat of tactical weapons.
Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has taken a dig at the recent statements made by Indian officials with regards to New Delhi engaging Islamabad in a 'limited war', warning that Pakistan had tactical nuclear weapons capable of causing targeted damage in India.
Talking to the media after inspecting an under-construction railway station building in Nankana Sahib on Sunday, he warned the government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi against provoking a nuclear power like Pakistan.
"Pakistan has small 125-250 gram atom bombs (tactical nuclear weapons) which may hit (and destroy) a targeted area in India," Rashid was quoted as saying by Pakistani daily *The News*.
The comment seemed to refer to recent statements made by Indian officials, including Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, that claimed New Delhi was in the process of reviewing a 'no first use' nuclear policy in light of changing circumstances in the sub-continent.
