On the other hand, the Spokesperson of PAKISTAN Foreign Office also confirmed in a statement in a weekly press briefing that PAKISTAN has undertaken a wide range of ‘Essential’ Security Measures to further strengthen the Security of its Nuclear Assets and Arsenal.
“Pakistan has been voluntarily adhering to the Code of Conduct since 2005 and has put in place all the necessary arrangements and systems consistent with the recommendations of the Code,” the Spokesperson of PAKISTAN Foreign Office Dr. Muhammad Faisal said in a statement regarding the security of PAKISTAN’s Nuclear Arsenal.
