Islamabad : Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, who has been raging about Kashmir, has now once again talked about it and has also linked it with nuclear weapons. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that as long as the issue of Kashmir is there, Pakistan needs it. Once the Kashmir issue is settled, Pakistan will no longer need nuclear weapons.
Discomfort in Pakistan due to India’s move
Imran Khan’s statement has come at a time when 14 leaders of eight parties of Kashmir have been invited for a meeting to be held in New Delhi on June 24 under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

PAK shocked by India!

The Pak PM claimed that he was not aware of where such reports were coming from and that he was not even “confirmed” whether Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal was actually growing or not.
Why does Pakistan need nuclear weapons?
Imran Khan also said that he has always been against nuclear weapons and once the Kashmir issue is resolved, Pakistan will no longer need it. Describing nuclear weapons as ‘important’ for Pakistan’s security, Imran Khan said, ‘We have had three wars with India and since we have nuclear weapons, there has been no war between the two countries so far. .’
Referring to Kashmir, the Pak PM said, “When the Kashmir issue is resolved, both the neighboring countries will live like civilized people.” We will no longer need nuclear weapons. He also said that there have been border skirmishes with India after the nuclear bomb was made, but there has been no war.
