NEW DELHI: Even as India considers military options to deal with cross-border terror after Sunday’s Uri attack, a comment from Pakistan today – especially its timing – should give pause to anyone in New Delhi considering ill-thought-out plans of retaliation.
“Pakistan’s nuclear program cannot be restricted,” said Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi, today in a New York press conference, Pakistani media reported.
Lodhi said that at a meeting with US secretary of state John Kerry urged Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to limit Pakistan’s atomic program. In response, Sharif told Kerry that what was expected of Pakistan must also be implemented by India, according to Lodhi.
“The world should first put an end to nuclear activities undertaken by India,” Lodhi told reporters, adding that Pakistan’s inclusion in the Nuclear Suppliers Group was also discussed during the meeting with Kerry.
