WASHINGTON: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday ruling out the option of nuclear war with India, said it is not an option and India must abandon its nuclear weapons.
This he said while giving an interview to an American news channel in Washington.
Commenting on Pakistan’s nuclear weapon’s security he said, the weapons are in safe custody. “Pakistan has a comprehensive and effective nuclear command and control system.”
On Kashmir conflict, the premier said the United States is the only country which can play a role of mediator between India and Pakistan to resolve the issue of Kashmir.
