Information The Nuclear Threat Initiative's (NTI) Nuclear Security Index

The Nuclear Threat Initiative's (NTI) Nuclear Security Index ranking has placed Pakistan above India, North Korea, and Iran in terms of handling weapons-usable nuclear materials. According to the index, Pakistan has gained three points since the last assessment in 2020, securing 19th place out of 22 states.
The total score of 49 for Pakistan is higher than India's 40, Iran's 29, and North Korea's 18.
However, despite Pakistan's relatively higher ranking, the index also raised concerns about the deteriorating global nuclear security situation. It revealed that nuclear security conditions are regressing in many countries with we*pons-usable nuclear materials and nuclear facilities.
The report pointed out that eight countries, including Pakistan, have been expanding their stocks of wepons-grade nuclear materials, some even increasing them by thousands of kilograms per year. This expansion undermines efforts towards minimization and elimination and poses an increased risk of thft.
Furthermore, the index highlighted that some countries are reneging on their commitments to confidence-building and information sharing, which were crucial drivers of progress during the period of the Nuclear Security Summits.
It is essential to note that this ranking and assessment are based on data and evaluations up to the year 2023 and do not represent the current state of affairs. Nuclear security remains a critical global concern, and efforts to address these issues continue to be of paramount importance to prevent nuclear proliferation and enhance overall global security
