 Nuclear capability saved Pakistan, says Dr Qadeer

 Updated at: 0443 PST,  Tuesday, May 17, 2011
Nuclear capability saved Pakistan, says Dr Qadeer WASHINGTON: Nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan has vigorously defended the program as sparing his country the fate of Iraq or Libya.

Writing in a US magazine, Abdul Qadeer Khan said that Pakistan's nuclear weapons had prevented war with historic rival India, which he accused of pursuing a "massive program" due to ambitions of superpower status.

"Don't overlook the fact that no nuclear-capable country has been subjected to aggression or occupied, or had its borders redrawn. Had Iraq and Libya been nuclear powers, they wouldn't have been destroyed in the way we have seen recently," Khan said.(AFP)
