WASHINGTON: Pakistan has stored its nuclear weapons in at least nine locations, suggest recent assessment by American scientists. Pakistan also has a rapidly expanding nuclear arsenal systems “of 130–140 warheads and an increasing portfolio of delivery systems.”
Out of the nine locations, four are near Pakistan 's Punjab, three near Sindh province and one each around Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The report published by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) says “Islamabad is quantitatively and qualitatively increasing its arsenal and deploying weapons at more sites, yet the locations are difficult to pinpoint.”
The report, authored by Hans M. Kristensen and Robert S. Norris, estimates that Pakistan has stored its nuclear arsenal in the following nine locations:
1. Akro Garrison, Sindh (Possible underground weapons storage site) 2. Gujranwala Garrison, Punjab (Possible weapons storage with components in remote depot) 3. Khuzd
