Are those earthquakes in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India and surrounding areas due to nuke tests?

As I recally the French had conducted several underwater nuke tests. Further, the Chiense has conducted a number of atmospheric nuke tests.

Are the French and Chinese hypocrites?

Should we believe the press release put out by various govenments?
