Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that the proof regarding India’s involvement in Balochistan will be presented at “a suitable time” and that country’s nuclear weapons are safe.
Talking to media persons in Multan, Gilani said that Balochistan issue was taken up during his meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at Sharm-el-Sheikh and was made part of the joint statement.
“The evidence will be presented at a suitable time,” the prime minister said.
In October, Interior Minister Rehman Malik had said that India was responsible for the rising incidences of terror strikes in Pakistan.
Gilani pointed out that Pakistan was in favour of good relations with all the neighbours and wanted the composite dialogue process with India to resume, saying its only way forward.
He said that no military operation is currently underway in Balochistan and that the ongoing operation in Southern Waziristan will soon end.
About safety of the nukes, Gilani said that there was no threat to the country’s nuclear assets which were completely safe and secure.
“Pakistan will not compromise on its nuclear programme and the country’s nuclear assets are safe under the NCCA (Nuclear Command and Control Authority),” Geo News quoted him as saying.
The prime minister said the country had the will to fight the war against terrorism, but the international community’s help would be vital in enhancing the country’s ability to win the war.
