Pak to get China`s latest nuke technology

Pakistan is negotiating with China for its latest third-generation nuclear technology, reports a news daily.



Islamabad: Pakistan is in an advanced stage of negotiations with China for its latest third-generation nuclear technology to build a power plant, said a daily Monday.
The Nation editorially said: "Pakistan has decided to secure latest Chinese third generation nuclear technology for building a power plant to generate more energy to meet its national requirements."

It said negotiations were in an advanced stage and "once an agreement is reached, Pakistan would be able to induct this technology within a two-year time".

Describing China as a unique friend, it said Beijing has "openly offered every support to Islamabad in any sector for rapid development".

The editorial noted: "What is also uncommon is the fact that China not only supplies plants or defence-related equipment, it also transfers technology to Pakistan so that it starts its own production."

Citing the examples of F-17 Thunder fighter aircraft and frigate warships, it said: "After the transfer of technology, Pakistan is now manufacturing them domestically. This has rightly been called genuine friendship."

It criticised the US while saying: "This is unlike the United States which would receive the full payment for F-16s and then refuse to supply them on flimsy grounds. Not only this, it would also refuse to return the money in cash suggesting that Pakistan should instead buy wheat."
