The nuclear tests were conducted in Chaghi, Balochistan.

"Pakistan successfully established minimum nuclear deterrence and restored balance of power in the region on this day [May 28] in 1998," said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a tweet on Thursday as the country is marking the 22nd anniversary of  Youm-e-Takbeer – the  day when Pakistan became a nuclear power.

On May 28 in 1998, responding to Indian nuclear tests, Pakistan successfully carried out five nuclear tests in Chaghi, an area of Balochistan.

The nuclear explosions, which were conducted in self-defence to respond to India's aggression of nuclear tests, made Pakistan's defence invincible.

"AFs [armed forces] salute all those involved from conceptualisation to actualisation especially scientists & engineers who made this possible. Long Live Pakistan," the military's media wing added.

As a result, Pakistan became the first nuclear power in the Muslim world and seventh in the world.

Meanwhile, Information Minister Shibli Faraz in his message on Youm-e-Takbeer said Pakistan's nuclear arsenals are guarantor of the safety and security of the country and its people.
