Pakistan adheres to nuclear non-proliferation: Malik


Islamabad: Pakistan strictly adheres to the policy of nuclear non-proliferation, Rehman Malik, advisor to the prime minister on interior affairs, said.

The country’s nuclear programme is in the safe hands and no one has access to its nuclear assets, Malik said Thursday at a conference that deliberated the subject.

“Some powers have wrong conception” about its nuclear programme, he said, adding Pakistan is capable to defend itself.

He urged the world community to “end discrimination against Pakistan” and accept the country’s role in international affairs, the Online news agency reported.

Malik said Pakistan has sacrificed more than any other country in combating terrorism. He said 39,000 people died in terror related violence in the country.
