Pakistan developing ‘new types of nuclear weapons’, claims American intelligence

Posted on

Washington: American Intelligence Chief Dan Coats has claimed that Pakistan is developing new types of nuclear weapons, including short-range tactical ones.

Coats said informed this to lawmakers during a Congressional hearing on world wide threats organised by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

“Pakistan continues to produce nuclear weapons and develop new types of nuclear weapons, including short-range tactical weapons, sea-based cruise missiles, air-launched cruise missiles, and longer-range ballistic missiles, he warned.

These new types of nuclear weapons will introduce new risks for escalation of dynamics and security in the region, Coats said, reflecting on the risks involved in developing such types of nuclear weapons.

Coats said North Korea will be among the most volatile and confrontational weapons of mass destruction (WMD) threats to the US over the next year.

On Wednesday, United States and its allies have tabled a motion with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to place Pakistan on the watch list of countries which are considered ‘non-compliant with global anti-terror financing measures’, said an exclusive report of the Reuters.
