SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT NEW YORK - Amid new American concerns about the safety of Pakistans nuclear weapons, former president Pervez Musharraf has said he has no worries about their security as they are 'very well dispersed and 'guarded. This is a very hard target. These are very hard targets and in places which are not accessible, Musharraf said of the nuclear weapons on CNNs GPS news programme when asked whether the recent movement of arms, as reported by two US magazines, suggested nervousness in Pakistan about attacks either from militants or from the United States. No. I dont I dont think it is possible, from my purely military perspective, for anyone, including the United States, to attack them that easily, the former president said, They are very well dispersed and they are in very strong positions. And, also guarded. So, therefore, I dont think - its as simple as Osama bin Laden action or a one point action which is a soft target. This is a very hard target. These are very hard targets and in places which are not accessible. Extracts of the interview with Fareed Zakaria, an American journalist of Indian origin, were posted on the networks website on Saturday. The full interview will be broadcast on Sunday, Again asked if he still had no worries about the safety of Pakistani nuclear weapons at a time of increasing terrorist attacks suffered by the Army and ISI, Musharraf said, I dont. I dont, unless Pakistan is - the governance of Pakistan is taken over by some religious extremist political organisation. Asked whether that could happen, the former president said, I dont think so. I dont - at the moment, religious parties dont even have 4 - they just have about 3 or 4 per cent of the total seats. And I dont see that happening in the near future. The Atlantic and the National Journal, the two US magazines, had put the focus back on Pakistani nuclear weapons, saying they were being moved in low-security vans on congested roads to hide them from US spy agencies, making the weapons more vulnerable to theft by militants. A joint report published in the two magazines, citing unnamed sources, said that the US raid that killed Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in May at his compound in Abbottabad reinforced Pakistans longstanding fears that Washington could try to dismantle the countrys nuclear arsenal. As a result, the head of the Strategic Plans Divisions (SPD), which is charged with safeguarding Pakistans atomic weapons, was ordered to take action to keep the location of nuclear weapons and components hidden from the United States, the report said. Khalid Kidwai, the retired general who leads the SPD, expanded his agencys efforts to disperse components and sensitive materials to different facilities, it said. But instead of transporting the nuclear parts in armoured, well-defended convoys, the atomic bombs capable of destroying entire cities are transported in delivery vans on congested and dangerous roads, according to the report. The pace of the dispersal movements has increased, raising concerns at the Pentagon, it said. The Pentagon declined to comment on the article but a senior US military official told reporters in Washington on Friday that the United States remains confident Pakistans nuclear weapons are secure. I believe the Pakistan military arsenal is safe at this time, well-guarded, well-defended, said the military official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The article, based on dozens of interviews, said the US military has long had a contingency plan in place to disable Pakistans nuclear weapons in the event of a coup or other worst-case scenario.
