PAF goes fully nuclear

By Super Admin

Islamabad, Mar.18 (ANI): Strengthening its capability, the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) has now attained powers of carrying nuclear warheads.

Addressing media persons on the sidelines of a book launch program, Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Tanvir Mehmood Ahmed said: "The PAF has been made nuclear for giving it the status of a real deterrent force."

"We have made the whole of PAF a nuclear force.The PAF has achieved such a deterrence level that no one could cast an evil eye on the motherland," Air Chief Marshal Ahmed said.

He accused India of escalating fears of war following the terror attack on Mumbai.

"Seeing the level of preparedness and alertness of the PAF, the looming dangers were averted, which showed that the attainment of nuclear power helped in achieving peace in the region," Air Chief Marshal Ahmed claimed.

He said that despite all the sanctions imposed on the PAF this achievement was highly commendable.

"We would have not gone nuclear. We are now a nuclear state and it is all due to the sanctions. All the sanctions imposed by the west from time to time were a blessing in disguise for us," The Daily Times quoted Air Chief Marshal Ahmed, as saying. (ANI)
