Possibility of nuclear war cannot be ruled out in South Asia says Pakistan NSA

Vastavam web: Pakistan’s security czar today said that the stability of the South Asian region hangs in a delicate balance and the possibility of a nuclear war cannot be ruled out.National Security Advisor Lt Gen (retd.) Nasser Khan Janjua also accused the US of conspiring against the multi- billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with India, The Express Tribune reported.”The stability of the South Asian region hangs in a delicate balance, and the possibility of nuclear war cannot be ruled out,” he claimed.

The NSA stressed that supporting US forces in the region had given birth to the rise of terrorism inside the country.”As the Taliban grow stronger in Afghanistan, America has started to shift the blame for its failures in the country onto Pakistan,” he said.”The US has given India role in Afghanistan s political process, giving New Delhi priority over Islamabad, and has opposed the CPEC,” he said.

The nearly USD 50 billion CPEC, a flagship project of China s prestigious One Belt One Road (OBOR), passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). The CPEC links China’s restive Xinjiang region with Pakistan’s Balochistan province.He said Pakistan encountered the menace of terrorism only after it started supporting the operations of US-led forces in Afghanistan.
