Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs highlights Pakistan’s strong credentials for NSG membership
Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi held a briefing for selected Ambassadors from the Nuclear Suppliers Group countries in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The Ambassadors invited to the briefing belong to the group of like-minded countries within the NSG, which stand for a non-discriminatory, criteria-based approach on the extension of membership to countries that are not signatories to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.
The Special Assistant appreciated the principled stance taken by these countries on an issue, which carried great significance for the global non-proliferation efforts, as well as for strategic stability in South Asia.
The Special Assistant also highlighted Pakistan’s strong credentials for the NSG membership, which include extensive measures in the domain of export controls and nuclear safety and security as well as Pakistan’s strong commitment to the objective of non-proliferation.
