Pakistan is proactively engaged with the international community to promote nuclear safety

Mushtaq Ahmed Mehar (Former Ambassador): The international opinion can never reconcile on having weapons of mass destruction. The nuclear program of Pakistan is in safe hands and is only for its defense. Pakistan has always demonstrated a responsible behaviour as a nuclear power state by vigilantly controlling and maintaining the safety and security of its strategic assets. Pakistan is proactively engaged with the international community to promote nuclear safety and security. Nuclear power plants in Pakistan are under IAEA safeguards. All the efforts of expanding the nuclear energy programme are in pursuit of a clean and effective option to meet Pakistan’s energy needs. Pakistan is in a position of not only using nuclear energy for its national programmes for development and progress, but can also provide assistance to other countries in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.
