In recognition of the 26th anniversary of Youm-e-Takbeer, the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee alongside Services Chiefs, on behalf of the Armed Forces of Pakistan, conveyed heartfelt congratulations to the nation, the military’s media branch mentioned in a statement on Tuesday.
This notable day commemorates the historic accomplishment of Pakistan’s nuclear tests conducted in 1998, which successfully established credible minimum deterrence and restored the power equilibrium in the region, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement pointed out.
On May 28, 1998, Pakistan emerged as the first Muslim-majority nation to acquire nuclear capabilities, marking a significant moment in its history. This achievement was a response to the regional security situation and ensured that Pakistan’s defense capabilities were strong and credible.
