ISLAMABAD - Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan makes important statement over Nuclear weapons use policy in case of war against India.

Pakistan will not use nuclear weapons first, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday, amid tensions with India after New Delhi revoked the special status of Occupied Kashmir.

“We both are nuclear-armed countries. If these tensions increase, the world could be in danger,” he said while addressing the concluding session of International Sikh Convention in Lahore. “There will be no first from our side ever,” he added.

Premier Imran also reiterated that Narendra Modi-led ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would now target religious minorities in the country after Muslims.

He vowed that the government would do its best to ease visa process for intending Sikh pilgrims. “It is our [government’s] duty to facilitate our Sikh brethren who come to Pakistan for pilgrimage.”

The government, PM Imran said, will try to give all Sikh pilgrims visas on arrival , in addition to multiple visas.
