After allocating and expending the billion rupees and getting the cooperation from Russia and Israel, India is still one decade away to defend Pakistani missiles in case of sudden war. Russian defense & nuclear analyst and the senior researcher of Carnegie Moscow Centre, Peter Topychkanov has said, “Even in ten years and with the huge budgets that India plans to spend on the development of nuclear weapons and capabilities, it is difficult to imagine it will be able to defend its territory from possible strikes from Pakistan in case of conflict.”
It worth to mention here that India is currently in partnership with Israel and Russia to enhance its ballistic missile systems. India needs Russian S400 Defense System to furtherance its security system. If India succeeded in getting this then still it will be not in a position to get an edge over Pakistani ballistic missile system in the next ten years. It might not be able to defend itself in the case of conflict between two arch-rival countries.
Commenting on the NSG membership status of Indian, Peter Topychkanov said that the world should be careful after this because India is not ready to reconsider its nuclear policies. On the other hand, Pakistan is capable of becoming the member of NSG but still it is facing reservations from America.
