ISLAMABAD Pakistan Thursday strongly rejected concerns, if there were from any side, regarding Pak-China civil nuclear deal, saying that the cooperation between both the countries had been intact for many years and there was nothing secret about it. Pakistan-China civil nuclear cooperation is going on for years. Our cooperation is under the relevant IAEA safeguards. Therefore concerns, if any, are misplaced, said spokesperson of the Foreign Office during the weekly press briefing. He said this while responding to a query, asking whether US was making concerted efforts to scuttle Pakistan - China nuclear cooperation and was pressurising China. It is pertinent here that China, avoiding US pressure, has made it clear it will abide by the deal reiterating that civil nuclear cooperation with Pakistan is peaceful. When asked if the upcoming Nuclear Supplier Group meeting could have any effect on the agreement related to Pak - China nuclear cooperation, the spokesperson remained tight-lipped and avoided to give any response. Media reports emanating from India have suggested that India is keeping an eye on meeting of the Nuclear Suppliers Group to be held next week, where the China-Pakistan nuclear deal may come up for the consideration even as Washington had reminded Beijing of its obligations to stop the nuclear proliferation. While, New Delhi is confident that the China-Pakistan nuclear deal will come under the spotlight, Pakistan keeps faith that the deal takes no exception to international laws and regulations. Answering to another query, the spokesperson said Pakistan had always been promoting the cause of peace and stability in South Asia. We are keenly looking forward to our engagement with India with the view to promoting this cause, spokesperson told media me. Abd-ul-Basit told the media men that the five FC troops, who were captured by the Taliban, had been handed over to the Consulate General of Pakistan in Jalalabad. When asked to comment on the Indian Foreign Secretarys statement that Pakistan should come out of its protectionist approach while dealing with India, the spokesperson said there was the trust deficit between both the countries. We hope that a sustained and meaningful engagement between our two countries would help bridge this trust deficit. As far as Pakistan is concerned, we are approaching the upcoming bilateral meetings with a positive mindset and we hope that these will lead to the results which are in our mutual interest and yield long-term benefits to people on both sides of the border, Abd-ul-Basit said. Answering another query regarding Syed M. Shah, a Pakistani citizen who was kidnapped and murdered in UAE, the spokesperson told media that Pakistans mission in Abu Dhabi and Dubai had been directed to extend all possible help in that matter.
