No choice: Pakistan obliged to develop nukes, says Aizaz

Aizaz said pursui­t of peace in South Asia remain­s the corner­stone of the countr­y’s policy­



Pakistan was obliged to develop nuclear capability for its self-defence and deterrence, Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said on Thursday.

”It was an existential choice that Pakistan made to preserve strategic stability in South Asia,” he remarked on the sidelines of the 70th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to commemorate the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.

The foreign secretary pointed out that “non-discriminatory, universal and general nuclear disarmament” remained the highest priority on the international security agenda for Pakistan. Aizaz said pursuit of peace in South Asia remains the cornerstone of the country’s policy.
