Pak N-arsenal is developing rapidly: Report

WASHINGTON: Estimated to have more nuclear weapons than India, Pakistan is rapidly developing and expanding its atomic arsenal, spending about $2.5 billion a year to develop such weapons, a report 'Assuring Destruction Forever : Nuclear Modernization Around the World' has said.

Pakistan is estimated to have 90-110 nuclear weapons.

"A long-term concern driving the programme is US policy of countering the rise of China by cultivating a stronger strategic relationship with India. This may tie the future of Pakistan and India's nuclear weapons to the emerging contest between the US and China," it said.
