ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has raised concerns over the US India nuclear deal.

Minister for Human Rights, Dr Shireen Mazari says US-India nuclear deals will disturb peace and stability in South Asia.

She was addressing the concluding session of two-day international conference titled "The Global Non-Proliferation Regime: Challenges and Responses" in Islamabad on Tuesday.

The Minister said the United States has a special responsibility to uphold international laws and norms.

She said Pakistan has been treated with discrimination regarding membership of Nuclear Suppliers Group as membership should be given on merit basis.

Highlighting ceasefire violations on the Line of Control, the Minister said Indian occupation forces have been targeting innocent people in occupied Kashmir and across the Line of Control. She urged the international community to look into the matter.
