Pakistan capable of inflicting
unacceptable losses on India: Qadeer


ISLAMABAD, May 26 (APP) :World famed nuclear scientist Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan on Tuesday said, Pakistan is capable of inflicting unacceptable losses on India.

"Our nuclear bombs are so powerful that these can bring devastation to an extent which can be unacceptable for the enemy," he  told Editors of National Dailies and senior journalists at a luncheon here Today.

He was responding to various queries whether Pakistan should sign or not, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).  Qadeer said Pakistan did not want to enter into an arms race in the region. He said after acquisition of nuclear technology and making its defence invincible, Pakistan should now focus its attention on the socio-economic development.

"We have told the Government that signing CTBT would not affect our nuclear programme as it neither envisages inspection  nor stops production of fissile material," he said.

However, he said, one thing was certain that the Prime Minister will never sign CTBT under pressure.
