Poor Pakistan’s Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Thursday rejected the demand that long-range nuclear missiles be abandoned. He said that no one has the right to tell Pakistan which range of missiles it should keep. This astonishing statement of the Pakistani Finance Minister has come at a time when Pakistan has started trying to improve its relations with China. China has just saved Pakistan from default by refinancing two loans. At the same time, Pakistan is waiting for China to re-deposit $ 2 billion.
Shaheen 3 missile can hit Israel
Ishaq Dar said, ‘There is no need to tell anyone what range of missiles it can keep and what kind of nuclear weapon it can keep. We have to keep our immunity. He made this statement inside the Pakistani Parliament where ambassadors of many countries were sitting. This is the first time that the Finance Minister of Pakistan has come in front of the world regarding this whole issue. According to the Express Tribune report, western countries are constantly demanding from Pakistan to give up its long-range nuclear missiles program.

Pakistan’s Shaheen 3 missile is the longest range nuclear missile which can hit up to 2,750 km. Entire India and Gulf countries come under the range of this missile. Israel is also a close friend of America in these Gulf countries. According to Pakistan’s famous defense journalist Kamran Yusuf, western countries including America 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.
Pakistan has made Shaheen 3 with the help of China
The 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 target it from Balochistan, it can wreak havoc even in Israel. That is why they are asking Pakistan to give up the Shaheen-3 programme. Pakistan opposes Israel and does not even have diplomatic relations. It is also said that the Shaheen-3 missile has been made with the help of China.
Ishaq Dar, on the other hand, has assured that ‘nobody, in any way, is going to compromise on the nuclear or missile program in exchange for getting a loan from the IMF’. After Ishaq Dar’s statement, the office of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif also issued a statement saying, “Pakistan’s nuclear and missile program is a national asset that is fully protected by the government.” He claimed that Pakistan’s nuclear program is completely safe and not under any pressure. Pakistani Finance Minister vented his anger on IMF for not giving loan.
