India had 160 nuclear warheads as on January 2022 and it appears to be expanding its nuclear arsenal, Stockholm-based defence think tank SIPRI claimed on Monday.

Similarly, Pakistan also appears to be expanding its nuclear arsenal, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said in a statement.

“China is in the middle of a substantial expansion of its nuclear weapon arsenal, which satellite images indicate includes the construction of over 300 new missile silos,” SIPRI’s statement noted.

China had 350 nuclear warheads in January 2021 as well as January 2022, it stated.

“Even though SIPRI’s estimate of China’s total inventory is the same as for January 2021, the number of stockpiled warheads potentially available for use has changed because new launchers became operational during 2021,” it noted.

While India’s nuclear stockpile increased from 156 in January 2021 to 160 in January 2022, Pakistan’s nuclear stockpile has remained at 165 in January 2021 and January 2022, it claimed.

“India and Pakistan appear to be expanding their nuclear arsenals, and both countries introduced and continued to develop new types of nuclear delivery system in 2021,” it claimed.

India does not share official data on its nuclear arsenal.

“The availability of reliable information on the status of the nuclear arsenals and capabilities of the nuclear-armed states varies considerably. India and Pakistan make statements about some of their missile tests but provide no information about the status or size of their arsenals,” the SIPRI’s statement said.

There are total nine countries that have nuclear weapons – the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea – it said

Indian numbers intentionally under reported by international organizations. Number is at least double the 165. Especially given the massive stockpile of weapons grade plutonium they have. Pak numbers understandably static given the economic woes…

All nuclear weapons in the world should be placed under observation and administration of Cuba which I think is a reasonable entity to act neutrally.

The world may go towards nuclear war if the Ukraine war is not resolved because of NATO putting its dirty nose in.

They will be used. Nuclear winter has been prophesied long time ago.

Proof of ancient India is testament to that. Then it becomes reset.

Here Pakistan army is still busy toppling governments
Pakistan should at least have twice the nukes india has
They have. They mean it when it comes to security. They don’t launch dharna and party and promote u-turn. 🤷‍♂️

What great power will nuke India if Pakistan is not one? China has a NFU policy, and Americans don't care enough to nuke India, nor can Indian missiles reach the US
