Possessing more nuclear weapons than India will not make Pakistan more secure, said a commentary in a Pakistan daily.

The commentary in the Express Tribune also said that Pakistan has "deep and serious problems that cannot be solved by more or better weapons".

"Pakistan's basic security problems lie within its borders: growing internal discord and militancy, a collapsing economy, and a belief among most citizens that the state cannot govern effectively. These are deep and serious problems that cannot be solved by more or better weapons."

It ended by saying: "We need fewer bombs on both sides, not more."
