Pakistan won’t follow suit if India carries out N-tests: Pakistani FM Shah Mehmood Qureshi

Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday said that Pakistan is capable of protecting its interests if India carried out further nuclear tests.He was responding to questions by newsmen here at the Foreign Office on Wednesday evening.When asked to comment on reports that India was preparing for nuclear tests and whether Pakistan would respond in kind, the Minister said “we don’t have to follow the tit-for-tat policy”. He, however, said “we would analyze the situation and then follow a policy that suits our interests”. About Pakistan-India relations, the Foreign Minister said Pakistan sincerely wants forward movement and this is possible only through dialogue.


Pakistan does not have to follow suit because their 1998 tests were probably extremely successful. As also they have been carrying on with cold testing at Kirana hills since a very long time. The US has not been able to stop this cold testing despite knowing that the Chinese are helping them at Kirana in a big way.
