Stockholm, June 3 : Estimates made by the Swedish institute SIPRI reveals that Pakistan has around 60 warheads with two new plutonium reactors nearing completion in Khusab, suggest its nuclear warheads will increase in the near future.

“Our conservative estimates are that Pakistan has sixty warheads and could produce 100 nuclear weapons at short notice," the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said in its latest annual report.

The report also discloses that Islamabad is developing an air launched cruise missile Ra'ad and also carried out four tests of its land launched sub-sonic cruise missile Babur. But the Information on these missiles ability to carry nuclear weapons is still not clear.

In comparison India also has 60 to 70 nuclear warheads but India only has short-range surface to surface Prithvi I (with the range of up to 500 kms) and medium-range Agni I (upto 700 kms) missiles deployed with nuclear weapon delivery system the report said.
