DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar Thursday took to twitter to pay homage to all those who helped Pakistan successfully establish credible nuclear deterrence & restored the balance of power in the region.
He said that on May 28, 1998, Pakistan successfully established minimum credible nuclear deterrence & restored balance of power in the region.
“AFs salute all those involved from conceptualisation to actualisation especially scientists & engineers who made this possible. Long Live Pakistan."
On May 28, 1998, Pakistan had become the first nuclear power of the Islamic world and seventh in the world after USA, Russia, Britain, France, China and India.
Pakistan conducted five successful nuclear tests in the north-western Chaghi district of Balochistan in response to continued aggressive posturing by India.
The Pakistani scientists triggered the nukes which transformed the black graphite mountain into a milky white mountain and showed the world an unbeatable power of nuclear technology. On this day Pakistan became the first nuclear Islamic country. The decision made the country's defence unbeatable.
