ISLAMABAD: Pakistan dismissed American and British fears that its nuclear weapons programme could fall into hands of terrorists on Wednesday as stated in leaked American diplomatic cables.
Memos obtained by whistleblower site WikiLeaks and reported by the Guardian and The New York Times suggested Wednesday that the United States was more concerned than it let on publicly about Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal.
Foreign office spokesman Abdul Basit told .“Their fears are misplaced and doubtless fall in the realm of condescension,”
“There has not been a single incident involving our fissile material, which clearly reflects how strong our controls and mechanisms are.
Basit said, referring to Britain and the United States.“It is time they part with their historical biases against Pakistan,”
