It seems Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja M Asif doesn't want to loose any opportunity to flaunt his country's nuclear arsenal to threaten India. Once again he has said that Pakistan is open to using tactical devices - a reference to nuclear devices supposed to be possessed by Pakistan - against India if it feels its security is under threat. In an interview to Pakistani channel SAMAA, Asif said "Tactical weapons joh hain, joh hamne yeh progammes develop kiya hua hai, yeh apne hifazat ke liye develop kiya hua hai. Hamne devices jo hain just as showpieces toh nahin rakhe hue. Lekin agar hamare salamati ko khatra hua, toh hum nestanabhut kar denge unko (Tactical weapons, the programmes we have developed, we have developed them for our safety. We have not kept them just as showpieces)."
