The Upgraded Version of Nasr Will Bolster Deterrence Stability in South Asian Region: Senator Sehar Kamran (TI)
Islamabad, May 06th, 2017: President Centre for Pakistan and Gulf Studies (CPGS) Senator Sehar Kamran (TI) has congratulated the nation on the successful test of short range Nasr missile. She applauded the country’s engineers, scientists and custodians of strategic force of Pakistan who have been contributing in bolstering the defence of the country. She said they are the real heroes and their efforts are laudable.
Senator Kamran has said that newly upgraded version of Nasr Missile, tested by Pakistan on May 5th, whose range has been extended up to 70 kilometers, has augmented the deterrence stability in the region. She said that the short range missile Nasr is an effective delivery system, which has the ability to carry tactical nuclear weapons, to deter any possible tactical military maneuver of India against Pakistan.
Senator Sehar Kamran said Pakistan was compelled to take such defensive and deterrent measures to retain regional stability in response to India’s use of destabilizing war machinery in the region. She said Indian provocations like the development of ballistic missile defence system which gives a false perception of first attack along with its aggressive limited war design of Cold Start Doctrine are a danger for the regional stability which can escalate limited war into a full scale war. She opined that the Indian aggressive posture especially witnessed in recent times is alarming and the world should take notice of such nefarious designs by New Delhi. Keeping in view the regional evolving threat perception, Pakistan should take all steps required to ensure its security, stability and peace, she said.
