Indo-US nuclear deal... By Hasan

29 July, 2013

According to the US Global Leadership Project, over 80 percent of Pakistanis do not like US policies regarding Pakistan. A majority considers US policies dubious and feels that it is biased towards India at the cost of Pakistan's security interests. In such a scenario an Indo-US nuclear deal and their strategic partnership only reinforces perceptions against the US. Pakistanis consider that the US-led attack on Afghanistan had serious fallouts and the entire fabric of Pakistani society has been badly affected. The Indo-US nuclear deal is country-specific and violates all non-proliferation norms.

It is considered that access to peaceful uses of nuclear energy is the right of every state and Pakistan is no exception. Offering of a nuclear deal to overcome energy requirements in Pakistan will be the best support. A civil nuclear deal will serve as the best tool in reinstating good relations between the two countries. If solving Pakistan's power crisis becomes a priority in Washington, the electricity-starved Pakistani population will be obliged to the US. This would be the carrot essential for Pakistan to secure US strategic interests.
