`India, Pak should work for peaceful co-existence`
Islamabad: India and Pakistan need to bury the hatchet and take a "giant leap towards peaceful co-existence," says a Pakistani defence scientist who played a key role in the country`s nuclear tests in 1998.
"We can neither choose nor change our neighbours. Won`t it be better if we lived peacefully?" Samar Mubarakmand, said a key member of the team that developed Pakistan`s nuclear weapons.
He made the remarks while addressing an annual reunion organised by the Old Ravians Union (ORU), the association of former students of the Government College University in Lahore. The reunion on Saturday was also attended by a 15-member delegation from India.
Mubarakmand said India and Pakistan need to bury the hatchet and take a "giant leap towards peaceful co-existence."
He said education institutions like Government College University were the nurseries that raised top-notch scientists who made Pakistan`s nuclear and missile programmes successful, according to a statement issued by ORU.
The government should pay special attention to the preservation and progress of these nurseries, he said.
