Sino-Pak Nuclear Cooperation For Peaceful Purpose


BEIJING, China: Nov 19 (PNS) - A spokesman of the Chinese Foreign office Liu Jianchao reiterated at a regular press conference on Tuesday that Pakistan, China nuclear cooperation is confined to power generation.

This cooperation, he said is only for peaceful purposes.

It is not against international obligations of nuclear non-proliferation and China's exports restrictions. The project was ready to receive the guarantee and supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), he said.

Liu stressed China opposed proliferation of nuclear weapons in any form as a signatory state to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and supported other countries to peacefully use nuclear power under IAEA guarantee and supervision, he said.

The End.
