Pak n-weapons in 'safe' hands: India

NEW DELHI Oct 30 (NNI): India on Tuesday hoped that Pakistan would not allow its nuclear arsenal to fall into "wrong hands", as is being widely feared by the international community in the wake of strong protests against government over its support to the US-led campaign against terrorism.
"I am sure that those in-charge of the nuclear arsenal in Pakistan are responsible people so as not to allow these arsenals fall in wrong hands," Indian Defence Minister George Fernandes told a seminar on terrorism here.
"We may differ in politics. But I must give them (Pakistanis) credit that they are responsible people and will not allow people to walk away with nuclear weapons," PTI quoted him as saying.
His comments came amidst reports that a special US unit was allegedly training along with Israeli commandos to take out
Pakistan's nuclear weapons in case of a coup against President Pervez Musharraf.
"Already there are fears of the likely use of chemical and biological weapons by the terrorists, which has created unprecedented panic in the US and in European countries," he said. He added that those responsible for the maintenance of these weapons of mass destruction in Pakistan "know how to keep the assets safely."
Meanwhile, George Fernandes has observed that Washington may never capture Osama bin Laden and dubbed its plan to overthrow Afghanistan's ruling Taliban "a long-term gamble."
His remarks came amid signs that, after three weeks of air strikes on Afghanistan, the international coalition put together by the United States following the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington was beginning to fray at the edges.-NNI
