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
"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
