Pakistan actively engaged with world on nuclear security: FO

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday said that it is a responsible nuclear state and remains actively engaged with the international community, including the United States, on nuclear stability and security issues.

“Pakistan’s nuclear policy is shaped by evolving security dynamics of South Asia, growing conventional asymmetry, provocative doctrines and aggressive posturing by India, which obliges us to take all necessary measures to maintain a full spectrum deterrence capability in order to safeguard our national security, maintain strategic stability and deter any kind of aggression from India,” the Foreign Office (FO) said in response to a recent article published in a leading US paper.

Pakistan seeks peace and strategic stability in South Asia as corner stone of its policy and considers conflict resolution as a means to achieve this end, it added.

This policy has been reiterated by Pakistan’s highest decision-making body, the National Command Authority (NCA), chaired by the Prime Minister, in its meeting on 09 September 2015, said the FO.
