No reason to think about Pak nukes' safety: US

Tags: News
In the aftermath of the terrorist attack at the Karachi airport the US has said that there is "no reason" to worry about the security of the Pakistan nuclear weapons.

"We know that they (Pak Government) care about this a great deal and have no reason at this point to think it's anything but safe," the State Department Deputy Spokesperson, Marie Harf, told reporters at a news conference yesterday.

"We believe the Pakistani Government understands the importance of protecting all of its arsenal, including things related to its nuclear program," he said.

Harf was responding to a question about the safety of Pak nuclear weapons in the aftermath of militants' attack at the Karachi airport, resulting in killing of 30 people including 10 terrorists.

The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
