20 Nov 12. Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Defense and Security in Pakistan” report to their offering. Pakistan is a sovereign state located in the southern part of Asia. It is the world’s sixth most populous country, with a population of 150 million and one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. Its military is armed with nuclear weapons and has the seventh largest force in the world, with a strength of 600,000. It is located strategically – with Iran and Afghanistan to the west, China to the north, and India to the east. Even now, Pakistan remains an unstable hot spot, with revelations by Wikileaks website in late November 2010 that a number of US diplomatic cables made public have significant concerns about Pakistan’s nuclear program. Pakistan is said to be producing nuclear weapons at a faster rate than any other country in the world. Furthermore, the north-west region of Pakistan is said to be the headquarter for al-Qaeda worldwide. In the realm of foreign policy, Pakistan’s major problem continues to be its 53-year old conflict with India, much of it involving conflicting visions of national identity. This conflict finds its most visible expression in the lingering dispute over Kashmir. This conflict has involved many major and minor wars, the last of which took place in the icy heights of Kargil in the spring of 1999. Militarily, Pakistan’s military has not fared well in its wars with India. Pakistan will not recover easily from decades of political and economic mismanagement, divisive policies, lawlessness, corruption and ethnic friction. Nascent democratic reforms will produce little change in the face of opposition from an entrenched political elite and radical Islamic parties. (Source: BUSINESS WIRE)
