Nuclear weapons are the only devices ever created that can annihilate the every living species of the world within no time. Today’s nuclear weapons are enough to wipe out mankind from the face of the earth. If any country has that destructive power, the possibilities of its exchange are there and the world will remain in a precarious state .If some countries rely upon such lethal weapons, other nations will inevitably seek to attain them for better defense. Many international campaign has started to stop its proliferation and to end the threat that such powers pose to humanity. The NPT is treaty whose purpose is to prevent its proliferation, promoting peaceful uses of this technology for power generation and to achieve disarmament. South Africa had this lethal technology but chose the benefits of disarmament and signed the NPT in 1991. Five nuclear power countries under that NPT—China, France, Russia, the UK and the USA—have intent to keep such powers for the indefinite future. Some countries, never signed this treaty, posses this power as useful deterrent against attack which is absolutely immoral to keep security on the threat to eradicate whole world. It is quiet difficult to find the exact number of nuclear weapons in each country’s possession since it’s top secret. Based on the estimate of Federation of American Scientists, list of top 10 nuclear power countries in the world is listed below.
