With the Nuclear Security Summit coming ahead, the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has proposed that he alone could fight terrorism in the Islamic countries though Pakistan is a serious issue, as the country equipped with nuclear weapons.
“Pakistan is a very, very vital problem and really vital country for us because they have a thing called nuclear weapons. They have to get a hold of their situation,” Trump told CNN, attending a town hall meeting at Wisconsin.
“When I see that and when I see it put in a park because it was mostly Christians, although many others were killed other than Christians, I think it’s just absolutely a horrible story,” he said keeping in mind the recent Lahore attacks, killing 74 Christians and injuring about 300 people.
He also added, “I’m talking about radical Islamic terrorism. I will solve it far better than anybody else running.”
Asked if he would support Japan or South Korea in helping out with nuclear weapon making in the respective countries he said, “”North Korea has nuclear weapons” though it “doesn’t have a carrier yet. At some point we have to say, you know what, we’re better off if Japan protects itself against this maniac in North Korea, we’re better off, frankly, if South Korea is going to start to protect itself, we have.”
Pakistan’s nuclear security adviser Khalid Ahmed Kidwai declined official calls from the US. The calls were made to rein Pakistan’s reliance on tactical nuclear weapons.
