A Brief History of Pakistan's Nuclear Program Pakistan's nuclear weapons program was established in 1972 by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, who founded the program while he was Minister for Fuel, Power and Natural Resources, and later became President and Prime Minister Pakistan began its nuclear efforts during the 1950s as an energy program. It was prompted in large part by the United States' Atoms for Peace program, which sought to spread nuclear energy technology across the globe. In 1956, the Pakistani government created the Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) to lead the new program
Pakistan is one of nine states to possess nuclear weapons.Pakistan began development of nuclear weapons in January 1972 under Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who delegated the program to the Chairman of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) Munir Ahmad Khan with a commitment to having the bomb ready by the end of 1976. Since PAEC, consisting of over twenty laboratories and projects. Pakistan: A Nuclear Power 1988 - 1998, 1994 - 1998 Events, Events On May 28, 1998, Pakistan became a nuclear power when it successfully carried out five nuclear tests at Chaghi, in the province of Baluchistan. This was in direct response to five nuclear explosions by India, just two weeks earlier
variety of reasons, Pakistan has chosen not to publicly pronounce its doctrine. One possible explanation is that Pakistan believes tambiguity adds to the value of deterrencehat . Pakistan is the weaker power both conventionally as well as in terms of nuclear assets, so is in its interest to it maintain this ambiguity . India is still protecting and funding the terrorist activities through their agents in Pakistan. In 1998 India tested their nuclear bomb which was ultimately a threat to Pakistan

Pakistan's nuclear weapons program has a symbiotic relationship with Indian nuclear weapons policy. Pakistan has always claimed that it developed its nuclear weapon capability in response to security threats from India. More specifically, Islamabad traces the genesis of its program to India's first nuclear test in 1974 This paper was an update to a JIC Paper from March 1975. It assessed that in absence of assistance for plutonium-239 or uranium-235, Pakistan could not be in a position to explode a nuclear. Analysts generally point to Pakistan's acquisition of nuclear weapons the previous year as the cause of India's restraint. Indian policymakers likely feared that crossing the line of control would trigger a wider conflagration, one that could turn nuclear. That history made it all the more surprising when last week, on February 26, Indian. Indeed, arms control investigators have long identified the subcontinent as one of the world's likeliest nuclear flashpoints. India and Pakistan share a long and complicated history, and they. India, which suffered continuing border disputes with China, refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1968. Fearing a second war with China and a fourth war with Pakistan, India.

Pakistan created the National Command Authority (NCA) in 2000 to manage and safeguard nuclear assets and related infrastructures. The chairman of NCA is PM, and members are, defence minister, foreign. A proper study of this program thus must trace the history of Ali Bhutto himself, and his developing interest in the nuclear option for Pakistan. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was born on 5 January 1928 into an aristocratic family of the Rajput nobility, which possessed (and possesses) near-feudal power in the Sindh region of what is now Pakistan India's testing of a nuclear device at Pokhran in 1974 added an impetus to Pakistan's efforts to build nuclear weapons. Through the late 1970s, Pakistan's nuclear programme was equipped with sensitive uranium-enrichment technology and expertise. The arrival of Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan, in 1975, considerably advanced these efforts Karachi's two nuclear reactors, expected completion in 2021 and 2022, will add over 2000 MWe of electricity to the national grid equating around 10% of the country's total power. Importance for Pakistan: Nuclear power as a source of energy remains of potent value for Pakistan as the country is facing energy shortages for over a decade
