Pakistan threatened India with nuclear weapons
Reporter: Ferdows Rasouli
India’s defense minister Rajnath Singh has said that the country has so far adhered to the policy of non-use of nuclear weapons first but could change their policy in the future if necessary.
The Kashmir region of India has faced widespread unrest and protests in recent days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s revocation of its special status and autonomy has intensified tensions between Delhi and Islamabad that have further exacerbated the region’s nuclear power.
“The region is witnessing a determined determination to transform India into nuclear power and our country remains committed to the doctrine of” no use of nuclear warheads, “the Indian defense minister said during the visit.
He continued: India has acted seriously on this doctrine but what happens in the future depends on the circumstances.
India and Pakistan both have several nuclear warheads. The two countries have not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or the NPT.
