Pakistan has urged Nuclear Suppliers Group countries to adopt objective and non-discriminatory criteria for awarding membership to the non-NPT states.

The call came from Additional Foreign Secretary Tasnim Aslam during a briefing session for the NSG countries’ diplomatic missions in Islamabad today.

It was attended by a large number of ambassadors and other senior level representatives.

The Additional Secretary highlighted the factors, which placed Pakistan’s application for NSG membership on solid grounds. These include Pakistan’s technical experience, capability and well-established commitment to non-proliferation and nuclear safety and security.
