Pak says was forced to test nukes in 1998 due to 'hostile posturing' by India 27.5.2018 General News
Pakistan today claimed it was forced to test nuclear weapons two decades ago due to hostile posturing by India. Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal issued a statement on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the May 28, 1998 nuclear tests, while insisting that the testing of atomic bombs by India eliminated chances of a nuclear weapons-free South Asia. Pakistan was forced to take that decision as a response, in self-defence, to the nuclear tests and accompanying hostile posturing by its neighbour. These developments unfortunately put an end to the prospect for keeping South Asia free of nuclear weapons - an objective which Pakistan had actively pursued, he said, hinting at India. India conducted a series of five nuclear bomb test explosions at the Pokhran in May, 1998, which was soon followed by Pakistan's tests. The spokesman said that despite the nuclear testing, Pakistan remained steadfast in its commitment to non-proliferation and global peace and strategic stability and ...

Pokhran pioneers claim India's weapon no credible deterrence 12.5.2018 DNA: Top News
India's nuclear weapon system is falling short of being a "credible deterrence" against adversaries, two key pioneers and planners of Pokhran-II tests said on Friday, in significant remarks coming around the 20th anniversary of the landmark event. India had conducted five nuclear tests on May 11 and 13, 1998, at the Pokhran range in Rajasthan. Former Defence Research and Development Organisation scientist, K Santhanam, and Prof Bharat Karnad, part of the first National Security Advisory Board, also called for more tests to inject credibility into the nuclear weapon system. Santhanam was the field director during the 1998 tests. NSAB had been constituted soon after the tests. "Our hydrogen bomb has limitations. It has not reached the stage of maturity. We have had only minimum success," said Santhanam. While China has tested its nuclear device 50 times and the US on around 2,000 occasions, India has done it only twice — in 1974 and 1998. Both experts revealed that there was an understanding to conduct ...
