Adviser: (Indo-US nuclear deal will impact South Asian stability: Sartaj Aziz)


ISLAMABAD: Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said that Pakistan supports reformed Security Council that corresponds to the positions and collective interests of all member states and not just a few.

In a statement here Wednesday, he said proposals to add new centres of privileges in the Security Council run contrary to the collective objectives of Security Council reforms and have no rationale.

He warned that Indo-US nuclear deal for political and economic expediencies would have a detrimental impact on deterrence stability in South Asia. He said Pakistan is examining the long term implications of these agreements for its security.

He said that India has been violating the UNSC resolutions on matters of international peace and security, such as the Jammu and Kashmir dispute and by no means qualifies for special status in the Security Council.

The Advisor said Pakistan is also opposed to yet another country-specific exemption from Nuclear Suppliers Group rules for granting membership to India.

This would further compound the already fragile strategic stability environment in South Asia, and further undermine the credibility of NSG and weaken the nonproliferation regime.
