May 8th, 2015
Following its 1998 nuclear tests, the leadership in Pakistan has emphasized the need to develop “a minimum deterrent capability to meet the requirement of its national, flexible (medium range missile force).” It is a surprising fact that despite being politically unstable, Pakistan has continued a sophisticated ballistic missile development program.
