The Meeting renewed Pakistan’s interest in joining the multilateral export control regimes on non-discriminatory basis; including the membership of NSG. Pakistan has the requisite credentials for full access to civil nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, particularly to meet its energy shortages.

Pakistan seeks peace and strategic stability in South Asia as corner stone of its policy and considers conflict resolution, as the mean to achieve this end.
