ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Monday rejected as malafide some media reports, which claimed US money was being used to enhance safety and security of its nuclear programme. The Foreign Office Spokesman Abdul Basit, in a statement, said Pakistans command and control systems were completely indigenous. We are fully capable of looking after the safety and security of our strategic assets ourselves, he added. He said the news report that claimed the United States was helping modernise Pakistans nuclear arsenal was totally baseless. We have never sought the advice of any US expert in this regard, he added. The Spokesman categorically stated that there was no truth whatsoever that any US money had been diverted towards Pakistans nuclear programme. Such unwarranted and unfounded assertions that keep appearing from time to time are clearly malafide, desperately trying to raise apprehensions about the safety and security of Pakistans nuclear programme, Basit said. He, however, stressed that such efforts were bound to fail, as the government and people of Pakistan were resolved to protect the sanctity of Pakistans nuclear programme under all circumstances. In another statement, the Foreign Office Spokesman said Pakistans position on the expansion of UNSC was anchored in principles and was not country-specific. Pakistan strongly believes that any proposal for reforming the Security Council should be equitable, fair and democratic. It should provide for enhanced representation from the developing world, Basit said. He was commenting on a news report of June 28 titled 'Pakistan is unclear on UNSC expansion issue. He said there was no ambiguity in Pakistans position on the issue. He said the news story itself, contrary to its conjectural title, quoted Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi as saying that Pakistan opposed expansion in the permanent category of membership of the Security Council as it would perpetuate the centres of privilege and would run counter to the objectives of reforming the Council to the changing realities. He said Pakistan believed that Security Council should provide enhanced representation from the developing world, correspond to the legitimate position of Africa and the Organization of the Islamic Conference and provide for a greater role of regions in determining their representation in the Council. He said that Pakistan would continue working with like-minded countries within the framework of 'Uniting-for-Consensus and in coordination with friendly countries would pursue the objective of a democratic and effective Security Council. He said Pakistans relations with India had no bearing, directly or indirectly, on its principled position on UNSC reform. APP adds: talking to a private TV channel, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit Monday said that a meeting of Friends of Democratic Pakistans working groups would be held here on June 30 (today) and July 1 (tomorrow). He said, Five working groups constituted earlier on energy, trade, security, infrastructure development and institution capacity building are going to meet on June 30 (today) and July 1 (tomorrow) in Islamabad. He said the concerned department secretaries would chair the meeting. Abdul Basit said FoDP countries would extend financial and technical support to the Pakistani departments in capacity building. He hoped that FoDP would show keen interest in Thar coal project, Basha Dam and other development plans. To a question, he said second meeting of Friends of Democratic Pakistan working group would be held in August while the second ministerial meeting of FoDP would be held in the first week of September in Turkey.
