WASHINGTON: At the global Nuclear Security Summit held here, Pakistan sought greater acceptance as a responsible nuclear state.

“We believe that since Pakistan has strong credentials on nuclear safety, security and non-proliferation, it qualifies for full integration in the multilateral export control regimes,” a statement presented at the summit said.

Pakistan assured the international community that it was strongly committed to the objective and had been proactively engaged with efforts to promote nuclear safety and security.
