India has more nuclear weapons than Pakistan while China is far ahead: report

THERE are nine nuclear-armed nations in the world and all of them, including India, Pakistan and China, continued to modernise their N-weapons while several of them deployed new nuclear-capable weapon systems in 2023, a Swedish think tank revealed on Monday (17).

In an analysis, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said China’s nuclear arsenal increased from 410 warheads in January 2023 to 500 in January 2024, and it is likely to grow further.
