‘Babur’ & Its Implications for Pakistan’s Defense Capabilities

This was said by Dr Maria Sultan Director General, South Asian Strategic Stability Institute in a press conference held at Press Club Islamabad on 27th September 2012. The South Asian Strategic Stability Institute (SASSI) is an independent think tank dedicated to promoting peace and stability in South Asia. Its work is focused on strategic stability in the South Asia region, and thus on the emergent nuclear relationship which is at the heart of that stability.
India's BMD technology development affects the balance of power in the region. Indian BMD systems pose challenges to Pakistan's nuclear deterrence capability by corroding strategic equilibrium and unstable balance of power in India's favor. Dr Sultan further stated that the 'No First Use' is in itself logic to build a large nuclear arsenal, and one which can clearly be seen in the draft nuclear doctrine where India, on the one hand, pledges to maintain minimum credible deterrence and on the other, it aspires to build a nuclear triad and further weapon development without taking into account regional stability.
FMT: Possibility & Prospects – March, 2011

Pakistan's credible nuclear deterrence will be eroded if world powers continue to assist India with the development of advanced nuclear technology, according to Dr Maria Sultan, a security analyst and the head of the South Asian Strategic Stability Institute (SASSI).
Sultan suggests that the civilian nuclear assistance being provided to India - which she suggests is being provided not just by the United States but also by Britain, France, Japan, Russia, Australia, Canada and New Zealand - may very well result in greater nuclear proliferation.
"The new trend of selectivity for access to nuclear technology based on commercial interests have increased the possibility of proliferation," said Sultan in an interview with The Express Tribune. "It has resulted in the creation of a new category of 'nuclear weapon states,' a contradiction of the founding principles of the non-proliferation regime and a challenge to international security."
SASSI is conducting a three-day seminar on nuclear security issues in South Asia, with a focus on the Fissile Materials Cut-off Treaty (FMCT), which Sultan considers an inadequate safeguard against nuclear proliferation. "The limited scope of the treaty offers India the opportunity to build strategic reserves of [nuclear weapons] stockpiles, and widen the disparity with Pakistan," said Sultan.
...
According to Sultan, the treaty would alter the strategic nuclear balance in South Asia in Indiaâ??s favor. She seemed to be supportive of the government's stance to block even the start of negotiations, but was unable to offer an explanation as to why discussing the treaty on an international forum was a bad idea.

Maria Sultan said that Pakistan'??s position on the issue of blocking the negotiations of FMT at the CD cannot be seen in isolation and is the product of destabilizing trends in the South Asian region and the global nuclear non-proliferation regime as a result of the policies of discrimination and selectivity of the powerful few.

Earlier, Maria Sultan, Director General South Asian Strategic Stability Institute (SASSI) in her opening speech highlighted the FMT. She also briefed the participants about the challenges confronted by the nuclear non-proliferation regime.
She also emphasized on the future energy needs of Pakistan and suggested that these needs should be met through nuclear energy. She was also of the opinion that an active participation in the CD could be the only way forward to break the deadlock; however, this would depend on how the developments outside the CD would affect it.
Pakistan believes negotiations on FMT on the basis of United Nations General Assembly Resolution 48/L which states a non-discriminatory, multilateral and effectively verifiable treaty for banning the production of fissile material and other nuclear explosive devices, she said.
Concluding her remarks, she stated that to get support from Pakistan for the FMCT/FMT would require recognition of Pakistan in the nuclear club.

Earlier, Maria Sultan, Director General South Asian Strategic Stability Institute in her opening speech highlighted the perspective of Pakistan towards FMT. She also briefed the participants about the challenges confronted by the Nuclear Non Proliferation Regime such as the issues of negative security assurances, challenger states, nuclear energy, the link between non proliferation and regional deterrent situation, Unilateralism and bilateralism vis-à-vis multilateralism.
Concluding her remarks she stated that future support by Pakistan for the FMCT/FMT would require dejure recognition of Pakistan in the nuclear club and an equal balance of responsibilities set forth for India from the non proliferation regime; for currently the benefits, which India has received as result of the Indo-US deal are not within the framework of an established legal treaty or non proliferation measures, which balance responsibilities with benefits such as nuclear and technology access.…
