Congratulating the nation on the 16th anniversary of “Youm-e-Takbeer”, Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has assured that Pakistan has a strong defence against any aggression.
“Our nuclear assets that are guarantee of national security are in safe hands and the same fact has been expressed and reiterated by numerous international institutions,” he said in his message on the occasion being celebrated today.
The prime minister, however, emphasised that Pakistan being a responsible nation was playing a vibrant role in the comity of nations.
“Let me state on this occasion that our nuclear capability should not be a point of concern for anyone as it is only for peaceful purpose and for the welfare of our people,” he added.
The premier said that Pakistan was cooperating with international organisations for peaceful uses of nuclear technology for the benefit of mankind.
“Pakistan has already expressed its willingness to provide this assistance and know-how under the aegis of IAEA in various aspects of peaceful application of nuclear technology to any country needing the same. We have expressed this resolve at many international forums,” he maintained.
