Washington, May 22 (PTI) Stating that Pakistan’s nuclear weapon is a “deterrent” against India, the country’s top diplomat to the US today expressed willingness to enter into an agreement with New Delhi to phase out all atomic arms possessed by the two countries.
Appearing on the CNN to make a public appeal to the Americans to donate USD five each through cell phone for the refugees of Swat Valley, Pakistan Ambassador to the US Hussein Haqqani insisted that the nuclear weapons of his country are safe and there should be no concern about their security.
“Everybody in the US Government who knows anything about nuclear weapons knows that Pakistan has a very secure nuclear programme. It’s a very limited nuclear programme to maintain deterrence vis-a-vis our neighbor,” Haqqani told the CNN in an interview.
