Pakistan has “cost effective solutions” to India’s latest ballistic missile defence system and would also find a counter to its nuclear capable submarine, a media report said on Wednesday quoting a senior official of the country’s top strategic body.

Addressing a conference on ‘Nuclear Deterrence and Strategic Stability in South Asia’ hosted by the Strategic Vision Institute (SVI), Adviser to the National Command Authority (NCA) Lt Gen (retd) Khalid Kidwai also said that Pakistan will remain unfazed as it has adequate response options that would disallow any disturbance of the strategic balance or strategic stability.

“The history of our strategic force development clearly indicates that Pakistan has never allowed this (strategic) balance to be disturbed to our disadvantage; we have always found effective solutions to redress induced imbalances from time to time,” Gen Kidwai was quoted as saying in by Dawn newspaper.

He said Pakistan would not follow India in developing a defence system against ballistic missiles because it found little value in such systems, but would continue to seek to redress the imbalances caused by India’s moves.
“Pakistan remains unfazed and as before, we have adequate response options which will disallow any disturbance of the strategic balance or strategic stability. That fundamental policy will prevail,” he said.

Talking in the context of India-Russia deal for S-400 missile systems, he said India had been working on the development of a multi-layer ballistic missile defence (BMD) system for over a decade now. Besides the S-400 deal, India has large-scale cooperation with Israel for the development of the BMD.

“Much hype has been created around this particular technology induction and some have gone to the extent of calling it a game changer for South Asia,” he said, adding that “this was wrong”.

Lt Gen Kidwai said Pakistan had already possessed “cost-effective solutions” to take care of India’s BMD in the shape of MIRV (multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicle) capability and four categories of cruise missiles.

He said India’s BMD only had symbolic value and “Pakistan’s answer (to it) is available today”.

The NCA adviser also said Pakistan had long ago taken “conscious decision” of not developing an anti-ballistic missile system because of the reasons that remain valid even today.

He maintained that Pakistan’s response to India’s nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine INS Arihant too could be found in full spectrum deterrence, which implied possession of a full array of strategic, tactical and operational weapons, having appropriate weapons yield, coverage and numbers, and liberty to choose targets.

Nuclear-powered submarine INS Arihant had successfully completed its first deterrence patrol, taking India into a club of a handful of countries which have the capability to design, construct and operate Strategic Strike Nuclear Submarine (SSBN).

Meanwhile, SVI president Dr Zafar Iqbal Cheema said India was looking for space for fighting a limited war with Pakistan, but Islamabad was trying to deprive it of that opportunity by coming up with responses like tactical deterrence.


“This is our contribution to peace,” he added. India, he claimed, was pushing the region into an arms race that would have long-lasting consequences.

We should soak our missiles in leapord urine just like Indian army used it for surgical strikes 2016

It would definitely help our missiles to avoid all systems :)

Do you think, after detonating the nuclear devices and producing various types of ballistic and cruise missiles, our scientists and engineers will be just sitting back relaxing.......far from it.

Why not soak it in Cow Urine so even if Indian systems are able to track it down, they wont shoot it down because it would be an insult to Cow Mata :lol:

Even Indian army didn't rely on cow urine and preferred leapord urine.

there are always cheaper solutions available to counter any technology, or one can get high on technological superiority and get screwed like US did in Afghanistan, a mission that was accomplished 17 years ago

The problem is cruise and stealth. And we are currently helpless against it(I think that). On ballistic front, the only capability we need to add, is intercontinental, to keep our big friend at safe distance.

INS Arihant's addition is symbolic, for a credible underwater deterrent, you need 4 submarines like the U.K, one on patrol and ready to launch at a moment's notice.

But China too has opted for S 400 system which is technologically the best
