ISLAMABAD: The United States supported Pakistan while denying a recent report in the Atlantic monthly, which questioned Pakistan's nuclear safety mechanism.

"The US government's views have not changed regarding nuclear security in Pakistan. We have confidence that the Government of Pakistan is well aware of the range of potential threats to its nuclear arsenal and has accordingly given very high priority to securing its nuclear weapons and materials effectively.

"Pakistan has a professional, highly motivated, and dedicated security force that fully understands the importance of nuclear security," the US Embassy in Islamabad said in a statement during the Eid holidays.

Spokesman at the Embassy, Mark E Stroh recalled, "As President Obama declared in March 2010 at the Nuclear Security Summit 'I feel confident about Pakistan's security around its nuclear weapons programmes'.

"But that doesn't mean that there isn't improvement to make in all of our nuclear security programmes." The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the ISPR have already rubbished the article, which is a continuation of leaks from Washington which are never ending.

Why does Pakistan need a divine certificate from the WORST LIERS IN HUMAN HISTORY? The most
balatant of their lies was, you guessed it, Saddam Hussain's WMDs, which was nothing more than a ploy to steal Iraq's oil. And now they are using the same trick to steal Iran's oil. If they succeed in that, next in line will be Pakistan's nukes, and jointly with India they are already conducting military exercises on Pakistan's border.

What the muslim world needs is an ISLAMIC NEWS AGENCY owned and run by them to avoid having to blindly accept the poisonous concoctions being dished out by the crusaders. All news going into or out of the muslim world must be its its exclusive reponsibility. This idea can be further developed by the muslim world media people.

Does anybody care?
