Nuclear materials must never fall into wrong hands, says Fatemi


WASHINGTON: Like others in the international community, Pakistan believes that nuclear materials must never fall into the wrong hands, says Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi.

In his remarks, delivered at a dinner US President Barack Obama hosted on Thursday night for the world leaders and officials attending the Washington Nuclear Security Summit, Mr Fatemi assured the American leader that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was “eagerly looking forward to participating in the summit’s deliberations”. But “unfortunate developments” at home prevented him from travelling to Washington, he added.
