Mushahid Hussai told the house, “such a step would open a Pandora box. We do not know the world body would appoint investigators from which country and if som investigators would be appointed from Israel or any other country hostile to Pakistan they would certainly ask to meet Pakistan’s nuclear scientist Dr.A.Q.Khan or they may ask Pakistan to open its nuclear installations for their inspection”.
Mushahid said slain prime minister prior to her return to Pakistan had pledged to world powers that she would ensure IAEA’s access to Dr.A.Q.Khan. Mushahid feared intrusive multinational involvement in Pakistan’s nuclear programme’. Earlier Monday he had admitted over a private tv channel that care-taker government had failed to provide sufficient security to Benazir Bhutto despite her repeated requests. Meanwhile its learnt that the Foreign Office too has asked Co-Chairman of Pakistan People’s Party Mr. Asif Ali Zardari not to seek United Nations assistance as it would reopen many other sensitive subjects.
