Islamabad: (23-June-2021) Leader of the House Dr Shahzad Waseem in his response said that the opposition was playing to the galleries. He said then President Asif Ali Zardari in an address to Indians on the invitation of Hindustan Times gave the slogan of “no first use” of nuclear arms without taking into confidence anyone.

He said that PM had talked about nuclear deterrence against India when the journalist had questioned why Pakistan was increasing its nuclear weapons. Secondly, he said that the word was not only used for Kashmir but he said that there will be no need of deterrence after the resolution of Kashmir and related issues and the time when they learn to live as civilized citizens. “This is the crux…and there cannot be comprehensive reply than this,” he said.
