ISLAMABAD: The Taliban have no plans to attack Pakistanâ€™s nuclear arsenal, their spokesman told the Wall Street Journal. A larger assault earlier this week by the Taliban on a naval base in Karachi renewed fears that Pakistanâ€™s sizable nuclear arsenal could be vulnerable. Taliban spokesman, Ehsanullah Ehsan, dismissed those concerns on Wednesday as Americaâ€™s â€œexcuseâ€ to pressure Pakistanâ€™s government into fighting the Taliban, who he portrayed as the countryâ€™s true protectors. â€œPakistan is the only Muslim nuclear power state,â€ Ehsan said in a telephonic interview, adding that the Taliban had no intention of changing that fact. He mocked Pakistanâ€™s willingness to work with the US, saying, â€œIsnâ€™t it a shame for us to have the Islamic bomb, and even then we are bowing down to the pressures of America.â€ Following the 2008 Mumbai attacks, the Taliban offered to fight against India alongside Pakistanâ€™s army in the event of war. Still, it was impossible to judge the sincerity of Ehsanâ€™s declaration regarding Pakistanâ€™s nuclear arsenal. Even if the Pakistani Taliban have no designs on the arms, there are myriad groups which are believed to have interest in acquiring nuclear weapons.
