Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi termed Indian Defence Minister statement over a possible change in its “no first use” nuclear policy as a damning reminder of India’s unbridled thirst for violence. On Friday, Rajnath Singh tweeted that India had remained firmly committed to the doctrine of “no first use”. But the future of this policy depends on circumstances.
Pakistan’s FM also tweeted. The Pakistan Foreign Minister also called Rajnath Singh’s statement as shocking and irresponsible.
Moreover, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Pakistan has always proposed measures relating to nuclear restraint in South Asia. And has eschewed measures that are offensive in nature. Moreover, Pakistan will continue to maintain a credible minimum deterrence posture.
