NEW YORK (APP) – Pakistan has fully ensured safety and security of its nuclear programme in the light of guidelines issued by United Nations, said deputy permanent representative Khalil Hashmi said while commenting on International Atomic Energy Agency’s annual report on Wednesday.
Addressing to the UN General Assembly, he said that Pakistan is implementing an action plan in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency to strengthen nuclear security.
He said Pakistani government attaches highest importance to the security of its nuclear power plants all of which were the agency’s safeguards.
Khalil Hashmi said Pakistan had sought to enhance the application of nuclear technology for economic and social development with the IAEA as a valuable partner in those efforts.
Vowing to continue playing its constructive role in advancing peaceful uses of nuclear technology, he said Pakistan viewed its membership of export control regimes particularly the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) as a mutually beneficial proposition.
