Subscribe to Oneindia News

New Delhi, June 18: Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Sweden- based international thinktank on Monday released its annual report, after assessing the current trends and developments in world nuclear arsenals.

As per the latest data on the breakdown of world nuclear forces in 2014 released by SIPRI, Pakistan has more nuclear warheads than India.

In 2014, India's nuclear warheads count is between 90-110 while Pakistan is ahead at 100-120 nuclear warheads.

The crucial point to be noted is that Pakistan conducted its first nuclear test in 1998 while India forayed into the field of nuclear test much before in 1974, but still it lags behind its neighbour in terms of warheads.

In its press release, SIPRI said that overall number of nuclear forces in the world have reduced while modernizations continue as none of the nuclear- possessing nation is ready to give up their nuclear arsenals.

India, Pakistan, China, US, Russian, Britain, France, Israel and North Korea- have been identified as 9 nuclear arsenals- possessing nations by the SIPRI.

Data from 2010 to 2014- revealed that Pakistan always outnumbered India in terms of its nuclear forces.

The total number of nuclear arms of all nine nations in 2014 is approximately 16,300 as compared to 17,270 in 2013.

India and Pakistan continue to develop new systems capable of delivering nuclear weapons and are expanding their capacities to produce fissile material for military purposes.

US and Russia together account for more than 93 per cent of all nuclear weapons.

Established in 1966, SIPRI is an independent resource on the global security that conducts research related to various nations' nuclear arsenals, arms and ammunitions, weapons, disarmaments and arms control and then provides data, analysis and recommendations based on their findings.
