Pakistanís presence at Summit brings legitimacy to nuclear program: Gilani PDF Print E-mail
WASHINGTON, April 14 (APP) - Pakistan’s participation in the Nuclear Security Summit and international confidence in the safety of Pakistani custodial controls has given a boost to the legitimacy of the country’s nuclear programme, Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani said.The Pakistani leader, who also had a meeting with the United States President Barack Obama, described his visit to Washington as successful. “Pakistan’s participation in the Summit itself brings (a higher degree of) legitimacy to our nuclear program,” Gilani told Pakistani journaists at the conclusion of the conference.  He said the negative impressions aired by critics of Pakistan’s program were effectively quashed when President Obama voiced his administration’s firm confidence in the safety of our nuclear safeguards.

“Our nuclear program is in safe hands and President Obama is totally convinced that our command and control system is undoubtedly effective,” said the Prime Minister, who was flanked by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Islamabad’s ambassador in Washington Husain Haqqani.         Gilani, who spelled out Pakistan’s position on nuclear security issues in two interventions, noted that of some 47 nations represented at the summit “not even a single head of state or government raised concers about Pakistan’s nuclear program which is a great victory for Pakistan.” “When President Obama himself has answered the question and stating our program is in safe hands, we could not have expected more,” the premier stated.
“I think by and large the visit was very succesful,” Gilani said.  Islamabad, he said, effectively communicated its point of view at the summit, where Pakistan urgd a non-discriminatory approach to civil nuclear cooperation and sought civil nuclear technology deal from the United States. On Pakistan-US relations, the prime minister said there has been improvement and that both countries would build on the strategic dialogue held last month and follow it with cooperation in various fields.
President Obama will visit Pakistan at mutually convenient dates. “I see a definite change in Pakistan-US relations,” which is moving beyond security cooperation in the fight against terrorism and will now cover many areas of cooperation.
Responding a question about his informal meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the Pakistani leader said he met him in a “cordial atmosphere.”
Continuing, he said, the international community and the United States are cognizant that Pakistan has an “extremely important” role in dealing with current challenge of violent extremism.  “Our friends realize that Pakistan is working in the interest of peace and security in the world and want to see improvement in Pakistan-India relaitons so that the focus is maintained on the fight against terrorism on the western border (with Afghanistan).” The focus in the region should also be on fighting poverty, hunger and disease, he said.
