Pakistan reaffirms opposition to production of fissile material

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has reaffirmed its opposition to a treaty banning production of fissile material used as fuel for nuclear weapons.

Speaking during a United Nations panel’s informal meeting, Pakistani delegate Yasar Ammar said such a move would have an adverse impact on strategic stability in South Asia.

He emphasized that a universally acceptable Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty (FMCT) would have to avoid discrimination between the different nuclear weapon possessing states.
