Pak-China N-deal ‘peaceful’, under IAEA safeguards: Basit
Islamabad: Pakistan has reiterated that its nuclear deal with China is purely for peaceful purposes, and is under the safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said that the peaceful nuclear deal is nothing new, and stated that it has been already underway for producing electricity.
“Pakistan has been cooperating with the international agencies in this regard and even China has also ensured the world community that Pak-China nuclear cooperation is for peaceful purpose and there is nothing wrong in this deal,” The News quoted Basit, as saying.
Referring to India’s civil nuclear deal with countries including the US, the spokesman said that every country has the right to have peaceful nuclear energy.
He also said that the world should not adopt double standards on the issue, and should not target Pakistan without any justification.
