Foreign OfficeNuclear materials must never fall into wrong hands: Tariq Fatemi

WASHINGTON: The Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi has said that nuclear materials must never fall into the wrong hands and this is a global concern which Pakistan fully shares.

In his address at a dinner hosted by the US President Barack Obama in Washington where he arrived to attend the two-day Nuclear Security Summit, Tariq Fatemi said that Pakistan has an effective emergency response mechanism including a nuclear emergency management system to ensure security of nuclear materials.


Fatemi said that Pakistan’s emergency response mechanism includes a Nuclear Emergency Management System at the national level. He said that a Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Support Center and a Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Coordination Center run round the clock.

The special assistant further said that emergency preparedness and response constitutes effective deterrence against malicious acts and this requires significant training efforts including those by nuclear security centres developed by states.

Tariq Fatemi said that in the past six years, the Nuclear Security Summit process has contributed significantly to nuclear security. He said that valuable ground has been covered in strengthening nuclear security architecture worldwide through national actions and voluntary exchange of experience, expertise and best practices.
