The International Atomic Energy Agency has approved Pakistan's application of Safeguards for Nuclear Power Plant Units K-2 & K-3.
According to Foreign Office Spokesperson, these two units are pressurized water reactors of 1100 MWs each and are being acquired from the People's Republic of China.
He said civil nuclear power generation is an important component of Pakistan's energy security policy and a vital developmental imperative.
He said these power plants will serve as important vehicle to help meet Pakistan's increasing energy needs and support sustained economic growth and industrial development.
The Spokesperson said that Pakistan has the rare distinction of keeping all its civilian nuclear facilities under IAEA Safeguards signifying its commitment to global objectives of non-proliferation.
