Beijing, Sun, 25 Mar 2012 ANI

Beijing, Mar 25 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani is committed to enhancing the nation's nuclear security, the country's envoy to China, Masood Khan, has said.

Khan further revealed that Gilani would be present at Monday's Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in Seoul, South Korea.

This is the second time Gilani will be representing Pakistan at this forum. The first NSS meeting was held in Washington in 2010.

"Prime Minister Gilani's personal attendance illustrates continuity in Pakistan's commitment with the NSS process, Pakistan's commitments to enhance nuclear security in our country, and our support to the international community to work for a common cause", The Nation quoted Khan, as saying.

Khan, who is also chief negotiator on Nuclear Security Summit (NSS), said Pakistan had successfully carried out stress tests on its civil nuclear power plants immediately after the Fukushima reactor incident.

Pakistan has a long experience of using civil nuclear technology for generating electricity, Masood Khan said, adding: "For the last 37 years we have successfully operated civil nuclear power plants. In 2000, we established a strong National Command Authority to keep close watch on all dimensions of nuclear safety and security."

Khan said Pakistan has a sterling record with regards to nuclear security and safety and has been regularly submitting its report to the UN Security Council Resolution 1540 Committee. (ANI)
