The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has published a booklet on “Pakistan’s Nuclear Security Regime” was distributed among the participants of the 3rd International Conference on Nuclear Security (ICONS).
ICONS organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) started in Vienna from 10th to 14th Feb.
This booklet is the second version of “Pakistan’s Nuclear Security Regime”, which was first published in form of a brochure on the sidelines of the second ICONS conference in 2016.
Officials of Foreign Office said in statement that this step is part of Pakistan’s practice to share information on the measures taken to further strengthen nuclear security and to demonstrate the high-level attention that nuclear security continues to receive in Pakistan.
Pakistan has shared information on the measures taken to further strengthen nuclear security and to demonstrate the high-level attention that nuclear security continues to receive in Pakistan with the international atomic watchdog.
Around 2,000 participants are attending the quadrennial event at the IAEA headquarters to discuss commitments, actions and the way forward to strengthen nuclear security.
Officials further informed that “Our affiliated institutes at Centre of Excellence on nuclear security have transformed into an international hub for imparting training and sharing best practices in the area of nuclear security. Pakistan’s nuclear security arrangements have been recognised at the international level by several high ranking officials and experts.”
Pakistan believe that the Agency’s undiminished focus on the promotion of peaceful uses of nuclear technologies, in particular through technical cooperation with the developing countries, can foster better appreciation and ownership for its activities in the field of nuclear security.
