Islamabad: If we need to use nuclear weapons for “our survival, we will”, said Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Asif.

Asif told Saleem Safi on Geo News programme ‘Jirga’ that use of nuclear weapons was an option as they were not kept merely for show but as deterrents.

“We should pray that such an option never arises, but if we need to use them (nuclear weapons) for our survival, we will,” he said on Monday.

He also said that “fuelling terrorism directly or indirectly is India’s proxy war in Pakistan”.

He said that Pakistan’s defence capability was strong.

Earlier on, Pakistan’s internal safety has been a question mark in itself. Recently, as per media reports, at least 24 militants were killed and 6 injured in airstrikes by the Pakistan armed forces conducted in the country’s Khyber Agency and North Waziristan tribal regions.

Fourteen militants were killed in an air assault in Tirah Valley, a news portal reported citing sources.

Ten other militants were killed in airstrikes in North Waziristan’s Shawal Gurez area.

Several militant hideouts were also destroyed.
