World powers urged not to pressurise Pakistan on N-issue


ISLAMABAD: Foreign Secre­tary Aizaz Chaudhry asked global powers on Thursday not to pressurise Pakistan on its nuclear programme.

“Rather than making unrealistic demands on Pakistan to compromise on its core security interests, major powers must consider implications of their actions and policies,” Mr Chaudhry said at a seminar on ‘Defence, Deterrence and Stability in South Asia’, which was jointly organised by Islamabad-based think-tank Centre for International Strategic Studies (CISS) and The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) of London.
