NEW DELHI:


India has voiced concern over the safety of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal following a militant siege at the country’s largest naval airbase PNS Mehran.


“Naturally it is a concern not only for us but for everybody,” Indian Defence Minister AK Antony was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India.

“Our services are taking all precautions ... but at the same time we don’t want to over react,” he said.

Sunday’s attack on the PNS Mehran base has raised fresh worry about the safety of Pakistan’s 70-100 nuclear weapons, and some analysts see it as a blueprint for a raid on a nuclear base.

Digvijay Singh | 10 years ago | Reply @ R S JOHAR, Arre yar.. I'm living in Pune, why you are labeling me as Pakistani? I didnt say anything against India, I just said RSS/VHP/ShivSena are more hatred towards Pakistan than any other group here. I'm proud to belongs to the country where diversified community exists.
R S JOHAR | 10 years ago | Reply @Santosh: Digvijay Singh is a Pakistani but posing as an Indian, so just ignore him. He is unaware that Bal Thakre is totally a spent force in India but Pakistanis still appear to be obsessed with him.
