PAKISTAN Said It Is Not Bound By Any Treating Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons:
PAKISTAN Foreign Office said on Friday that the Sacred Country PAKISTAN is not bound by any of the obligations mentioned in the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. This treaty was negotiated outside the United Nations Disarmament negotiating Forums and adopted in July 2017.
Zahid Hafeez Choudhri further added that majority of Non-Nuclear Armed States have also refused to become the part of the Treaty that reflects the worth of the treaty.
The Spokesperson of PAKISTAN Foreign Office Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said PAKISTAN is not connected or abide by any regulations mentioned in the Treaty nor contributes the development of customary international law in any manner whatsoever.
PAKISTAN Foreign Office said that the treaty for prohibition of Nuclear weapons failed miserably to take any Nuclear Armed States, including PAKISTAN, on board the legitimate interests of the stakeholders and it has not worth at all.
“None of the nuclear-armed states, including PAKISTAN, took part in the negotiations of the Treaty, which failed to take on board the legitimate interests of all the stakeholders. Many non-nuclear armed states have also refrained from becoming Parties to the Treaty,” PAKISTAN FO said.
According to the statement released by the PAKISTAN FO, the UN General Assembly has devoted the first special session of Nuclear Disarmament in 1978. It has agreed by the consensus for the adoption of disarmament measures by keeping the right of security of each state in mind.
“PAKISTAN believes that this cardinal objective can only be achieved as a cooperative and universally agreed undertaking, through a consensus-based process involving all the relevant stakeholders, which results in equal and undiminished security for all States.” FO said.
“It is indispensable for any initiative on nuclear disarmament to take into account the vital security considerations of each and every State,” PAKISTAN FO said.
“PAKISTAN stresses that this Treaty neither forms a part of, nor contributes to the development of customary international law in any manner,” PAKISTAN Foreign Office further added in the statement.
