When did Pakistan become Nuclear Weapons state (me, I am thinking somewhere in early 70's)?
The reason I am thinking somewhere in the early 70's is because in 1974 India tested a nuclear weapon. and since Pakistan is a nervous and competitive neighbor especially over kashmir which lies between India and Pakistan.

"Dr. Samar Mubarik Mand, member Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, has said that the team of Atomic Energy Commission developed the design of atomic bomb in 1978 and had successfully conducted a cold test after developing the first atomic bomb in 1983."
