Pak "regrets" that N Korea conducted nuclear test
Islamabad: Pakistan Tuesday regretted the atomic test conducted by North Korea, saying all countries should comply with their international obligations on nuclear issues.
"Pakistan regrets that the government of DPRK has conducted an underground nuclear test today," Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Khan said in a brief statement.
He said Pakistan "believes that all countries should comply with their respective international obligations".
Islamabad supports a "nuclear weapons free Korean peninsula as agreed by all parties in the Framework Agreement of 1994 and reaffirms its support for the Six-Party Talks process", Khan said.
Disgraced scientist A Q Khan, considered the father of Pakistan`s nuclear bomb, played a key role in the illegal transfer of atomic technology and equipment, including centrifuges used to enrich uranium, to North Korea.
Though Khan confessed to running a clandestine nuclear proliferation ring on state-run television in 2004, the current Pakistan Peoples Party-led government has removed most of the restrictions on his movement.
