India introduced nukes to S. Asia: Pakistan

WASHINGTON: Pakistan reminded the international community on Saturday that it did not introduce nuclear weapons to South Asia, India did.In a statement issued here, Pakistan Embassy rejected suggestions by the US media that Pakistan was “irresponsibly building its nuclear arsenal”.“Pakistan was not the first to introduce nuclear weapons in South Asia, India was,” the statement said.It also referred to recent reports, which confirmed that India continued to grow its nuclear programme by testing missiles with longer ranges.India was also working on fissile material production facilities, and investing in a nuclear triad that inevitably requires a larger nuclear arsenal, the embassy said.
