Government of PakistanYoum-e-Takbeer: Pakistan firmly believes in peaceful resolution of conflicts: Acting President Gilani

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Acting President Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani has said that Pakistan, as a responsible nuclear state, firmly believes in the peaceful resolution of conflicts.

In his message on the occasion of Youm-e-Takbeer being observed on Tuesday, the acting president said that we are also strictly adhering to international standards, and have implemented stringent controls and comprehensive safety measures to safeguard our nuclear assets.


Gilani said that Pakistan remains committed to maintaining Credible Minimum Deterrence, preserving the balance of power and deterring aggression. He added that Pakistan’s strategic capability serves as a powerful deterrent and a weapon for peace. Nuclear deterrence stands as a cornerstone of stability in South Asia, and we remain steadfast in our resolve to uphold this principle, also said.

With particular regard to Youm-e-Takbeer, the acting president said that the whole nation is observing the Day to mark the 26th Anniversary of Pakistan’s nuclear tests which is a pivotal moment in our history.

“We renew our pledge to continue working towards a peaceful and stable world,” he remarked.

Acting President Gilani said that on this Day, we successfully demonstrated our nuclear capabilities and joined the ranks of nuclear powers.

Yusuf Raza Gilani said that Youm-e-Takbeer serves as a testament to our nation’s resilience, unwavering determination, and commitment to maintaining regional peace and stability. The journey to becoming a nuclear state was not without its difficulties, he noted.

The acting president said that our leadership and scientists braved various challenges to achieve this remarkable feat.

“Today, as we reflect on this journey, we acknowledge the hard work of our scientists and engineers without whom this achievement would not have been possible,” Gilani said.

“Today, we also recognize the contributions of Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto whose efforts led to making Pakistan a nuclear state. We also appreciate Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto’s decision as the opposition leader of the time to support Mian Nawaz Sharif for conducting nuclear tests,” he added.

Indeed, Acting President Gilani noted, it was the collective determination of our civil and military leadership as well as our scientific acumen, and unwavering dedication to national defence that propelled us forward.

“Let’s draw inspiration from this success and work together to make the Country’s defence impregnable through technological and economic advancements,” he said.
