In an article for London’s Sunday Times, Anupam Shrivastava, director of UGA’s Center for International Trade and Security, shed light on the changing nature of the years-old conflict between India and Pakistan in the nuclear age.
“Unlike Pakistan, India has a no first strike policy. It completely changes India’s military planning because having plutonium gives Pakistan the option of deploying from land, sea or air. For Pakistan it’s a quantum leap. It gives them options to target all of India,” he said.
