Pakistan's Atomic Weapons Secure: United States

Lalit K Jha

Washington, Jun 15 (PTI) Amid India's concerns over the danger of Pakistan's nuclear arsenal falling into the hands of terrorists, top US Commander Mike Mullen has said Islamabad's atomic weapons are secure.

"We have actually expended resources in support of assisting them (Pakistan), our government has, not the Pentagon, and they have responded positively in that regard," Admiral Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Charlie Rose Show.

"So they are certainly aware of those concerns, they have them themselves. I see them learning in that regard, so the trend from my perspective is in the right direction, and where we are as we speak is that those weapons are secure and I'm comfortable with that," he said.
