According to a nuclear notebook published in the journal Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Pakistan is expanding its nuclear arsenal and the Islamic nation has approximately 165 warheads as of September 2021. This number is far higher than the prediction by the US Defense Intelligence Agency, which had predicted in 1999 that Pakistan’s estimated nuclear warheads would reach somewhere from 60 to 80.
