Overview of the Webinar
The Center for International Strategic Studies (CISS) held a Webinar on Pakistani and Indian Nuclear Programs: Myths and Realities, on 24th June, 2020. Ambassador Ali Sarwar Naqvi, Executive Director CISS, gave his opening remarks and discussed the topic and its significance. The main theme related to the Pakistan’s nuclear program and myths about its development and reports regarding the numbers of warheads emanating from various research organizations since 2002. A recent SIPRI report had again exaggerated the range and scope of Pakistan’s nuclear program. This was picked up by the news media which has again launched a campaign of disinformation in this regard. Ms. Saima Aman Sial moderated the discussion and introduced the panelists. There were three distinguished speakers, Dr. Naeem Ahmed Salik, Dr. Maria Sultan and Dr. Mansoor Ahmed. The speakers gave presentations about the myths and realities of both Pakistani and Indian nuclear programs with factual and research analysis. The presentations were followed by Q/A session, in which different participants shared their thoughts and analyses about the given topic. The salient points of the presentations and set of takeaways drawn from the speakers’ presentations and discussion are given below.
