India was developing atomic submarines and building up its atomic stockpile day by day, a top Pakistani official claimed today, asserting that Pakistan is forced to take measures to ensure its defence.
Additional Secretary (UN and Economic Cooperation) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Tasnim Aslam also alleged that India was resorting to unprovoked firing on the Line of Control and simultaneously issuing irresponsible statements.
"India is developing atomic submarines and also resorting to unprovoked firing on the line of control and the working boundary. In these circumstances, Pakistan has no option but to keep itself ready for defense," she said at a seminar here.
She said India was also building its atomic stockpile day by day. "In these circumstances Pakistan has no option but to keep itself ready for defense," Aslam said.
