SIPRI Says, Pakistan Has More Nuclear Warheads Than India
Pakistan keeps on being in front of India with regards to having nuclear warheads, with China having twofold the amount, as indicated by a report by a main Swedish research organization. 

Pakistan is accepted to have 140-150 nuclear warheads this year, 10 more than a year ago. Conversely, India is said to have 130-140 nuclear warheads, as per the yearly nuclear powers information by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

India and Pakistan are both expanding their nuclear weapon stockpiles as well as developing new land-, sea- and air-based missile delivery systems

SIPRI Added, 

China continues to modernize its nuclear weapon delivery systems and is slowly increasing the size of its nuclear arsenal

Russia and the US hold more than 92 for each penny of the aggregate warheads, it said. 

SIPRI said nine nations — the US, Russia, Britain, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea — had 14,465 nuclear warheads toward the start of 2018, of which 3,750 were really sent. 

Toward the beginning of 2017, the aggregate number of nuclear warheads was 14,935, it said. 

The decrease is to a great extent because of the arms control responsibilities by the US and Russia in the 2010 Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New START), the Stockholm-based association said. 

It said that France with 300 warheads, China 280, Britain 215, Pakistan 140-150, India 130-140, Israel 80 and North Korea 10-20, were all either sending or wanting to convey new nuclear weapons framework. 

In spite of making restricted decreases to their nuclear powers, both Russia and the USA have long haul programs under approach to supplant and modernize their nuclear warheads, rocket and flying machine conveyance frameworks, and nuclear weapon creation offices, it said. 

SIPRI cautioned that modernization of nuclear weapons proceeds regardless of a decrease in the aggregate number of nuclear warheads. 

The modernization programs in progress in the nuclear weapon-having states show that honest to goodness advance towards nuclear demobilization will remain an inaccessible objective,” says Shannon Kile, Senior Researcher with the SIPRI Disarmament, Arms Control and Non-proliferation Programme.
