Gaining three more points since the last assessment, Pakistan ranked above India, Iran, and North Korea in terms of its handling of hazardous material, reported an international organisation evaluating the status of global nuclear security. According to The Nuclear Security Index (NSI), the country now ranks 19 on the list of 22 states.
The Nuclear Security Index (NSI) — maintained by the Washington-based Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), a non-profit entity that meticulously records how countries handle nuclear material — measures countries’ nuclear security capabilities and efforts based on indicators and criteria.
These include the security of nuclear materials and facilities, adherence to international norms and treaties, the regulatory framework for nuclear security, and implementing best practices to prevent unauthorised access to nuclear weapons or materials.
