Pakistan’s nuclear policy problems

Pakistan’s nuclear policy dilemmas – The Express Tribune, 4 Oct 10, On September 27, Pakistan became the new chair of the UN nuclear watchdog’s governing body, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This comes a week after Pakistan expressed its resolve to block all talks proposing a treaty to ban production of fissile material used as fuel for nuclear weapons.
Pakistan’s ambassador to the UN in Geneva argues that India’s strategy of proliferation of nuclear technology poses an unfair advantage with bigger fissile material stockpiles and raises concerns about the “discriminatory” nuclear cooperation deals with the US. Pakistan has come to rely on its nuclear weapons and their dispersal to prevent Indian preemption…….

the world perceives the selection of Pakistan as the chair of the IAEA as problematic. The most sinister concern, however, lies in the assertion of nuclear terrorism emerging out of Pakistan……… Pakistan’s nuclear policy dilemmas – The Express Tribune
