Pakistan’s strategic assets fully safe: FO

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s strategic assets are as safe as that of any other nuclear weapon state and these assets are fully safeguarded and secure under the protection of a well established command and control system, a Foreign Office spokesman said here Sunday while rejecting the suggestion that there is any danger of Pakistan’s strategic assets falling in wrong hands.

Referring to a British newspaper report of December 1 regarding safety of Pakistan’s strategic assets, the spokesman dismissed its contents as “outlandish musings by an academic”. The spokesman further said, “These are very dangerous ideas and people espousing them, should be aware that Pakistan possesses adequate retaliatory capacity to defend its strategic assets and sovereignty”.-SANA
