Int'l order to promote nuclear disarmament must be non-discriminatory: Pakistan
Speaking in the General Assembly's First Committee in Geneva, Pakistan ‘ permanent representative to the United Nations Farukh Amil said that such an international order should also rationalize the stockpiles of conventional weapons and strengthen the non-proliferation regime by shunning double standards.
He said that double standards in the application of non-proliferation norms for the sake of political expedience and economic benefits have endangered strategic stability in the South Asia region and beyond.
Ambassador said Pakistan remains committed to the goal of complete nuclear disarmament in a universal, verifiable and non-discriminatory manner.
He however, said the objective of this process should be undiminished security at the lowest possible level of armaments and military forces.
