 Nuclear weapons

India

India is not a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. India maintains a “no first use” nuclear policy

India has not released any official statements about the size of its nuclear arsenal. As of January 2020, India was estimated to have around 150 warheads.

Pakistan

Pakistan is one of several nations that are not the part of Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Yet, the Pakistani government managed to acquire nuclear warheads, or at least it is believed so. The entire pursuit for nuclear power began at the beginning of the 1970s. It was back then when Western Powers heard about Pakistan’s efforts of developing nuclear weapons. In the beginning, the government established the first nuclear power plant. It was located near Karachi. Noteworthy is the fact that it was possible due to the help of Western nations, which provided Pakistan with necessary equipment and materials. Later on, the president of Pakistan said that the main goal of Pakistan is to construct nuclear weapons. It was a response to India’s claim that they are capable of building nuclear weapons.

Although throughout the 1970s and at the beginning of the 1980s there were few facts regarding Pakistan’s nuclear capabilities, there were rumours that from the mid-1980s, Pakistan already had a few warheads. However, it was only in 1998 that Pakistan decided to conduct its first nuclear tests. There were 6 tests and they were the response to 5 tests that India conducted several weeks before Pakistan.
