Islamabad:  Days after Pakistani Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said ,  “our arms are not meant for decoration”, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday discussed the country’s nuclear, missile and space programmes with newly-appointed Strategic Plans Chief here.

Sharif appreciated security and safety mechanisms and said that the Strategic Plans Department (SPD) has played an important role in strengthening Pakistan’s defence capabilities, reports Dawn.

On June 16, Khawaja Asif said, “if forced into war by India, Islamabad would respond in a befitting manner”. He further added, “If need, we will use those (nuclear arms) against India”.

New SPD chief Lt. Gen. Mazhar Jamil, thanked the government for reposing confidence in him for the assignment and assured to Sharif that he would discharge his responsibilities.

Sharif expressed confidence that the SPD would continue to work towards this end under his command.

The SPD is an important component of Pakistan’s National Command Authority which is headed by the Prime Minister and exercises complete control over the country’s nuclear and strategic capability structure.
