US Intelligence Says Pakistan Is Developing New Types Of Nuclear Weapons


America’s Intelligence chief, on Tuesday, warns about the threat coming from Pakistan with the development of their new types of nuclear weapons and short-range devices that can bring severe damages to the country.

Not long ago, a group of Pakistan based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Muhammad killed seven people including six soldiers in an attack at Sunjuwan Military Camp in Jammu.

The statement by Dan Coats’, director of National Intelligence was given thereafter during a Congressional hearing on worldwide threats organised by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence where he spoke to the lawmakers about the different weapons being developed by Pakistan.

Short-range tactical weapons, sea-based cruise missiles, air-launched cruise missiles, and longer-range ballistic missiles are some of the newer kind of nukes the country has been working to produce, warned Coats.

With the emergence of such nuclear and tactical weapons, Coats explained the increased risk for escalation of dynamics which will also put the security in danger around the region.

The terrorist groups, with the support of Pakistan, will continue to strike India, warned Coats.  The tension between the two countries is likely to intensify with this.

On ‘Worldwide Threat Assessment’ of the US intelligence community, coats said, “Militant groups supported by Islamabad will continue to take advantage of their safe haven in Pakistan to plan and conduct attacks in India and Afghanistan, including against US interests”.

North Korea is believed to become one of the most unpredictably explosive weapons of mass destruction (WMD) which will be a big threat to the US by next year, said Coats.

North Korea’s intentions are pretty obvious to escalate threatening and dangerous technologies taking reference from the past. Previously, the country has been involved in exporting ballistic missile technology to countries like Iran and Syria. It also helped Syria making a nuclear reactor which was destroyed in 2007.

North Korea conducted its first International Ballistic Missile (ICBM) tests in 2017 with the huge amount of ballistic missile tests for the second year in the row and its sixth and highest yield nuclear test till date.

The evaluation suggests North Korea have a longstanding Biological Weapons (BW) capability and biotechnology infrastructure supportive of a BW programme in addition to a Chemical Weapons (CW) programme, said Coats.

The security of the United States, its deployed troops and its allies, all fall under danger with the state working for the modernization and development or even to acquire WMD.

Biological and chemical materials and technologies are easy to travel in the globalised economy having dual use often can be used for legitimate and illegitimate purposes.

The latest information about discoveries and stuff gets wide platform around the corner. Its one hand distance access and can be easily taken into use for good or for worse.
