Pakistan’s Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Thursday (March 16) rejected the IMF’s demand that long-range Nuclear missiles should not be manufactured. The Finance Minister said, "There is no need to tell anyone what range of missiles Pakistan can keep and what kind of nuclear weapons it can keep. We have to keep our immunity up."
Shaheen 3 has a range of 2,750 km
Actually, Pakistan’s Shaheen 3 missile is the longest range nuclear missile with a range of 2,750 km. Please tell that the whole of India and the Gulf countries come in the JD of this missile. America’s best friend Israel is also in this region. According to Pakistan’s famous defense journalist Kamran Yusuf, America and West Countries say that the biggest threat to Pakistan is from India, but short-range missiles are also sufficient against it. Then why is Pakistan manufacturing Shaheen-3 missile?
Pakistani journalist said that America is afraid that if the situation worsens in Pakistan, then this missile can go into the hands of terrorists. If these terrorists attack it from Balochistan, then it can create havoc even in Israel. For this reason, they are asking Pakistan to leave the Shaheen-3 programme. Pakistan opposes Israel and there is no diplomatic relations between the two. It is also said that the Shaheen-3 missile has been made with the help of China.
