AQ Khans case is closed: Pak ministerJuly 13th, 2008 - 2:24 pm ICT by ANI
New York, July 13 (ANI): Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has ruled out any future investigation into whether Pakistan Army helped disgraced nuclear scientist Dr AQ Khan spread nuclear weapons to rogue nations.
He told a foreign news agency that the case was closed and there would be no further comment or future investigations.
What had to be found out, was found out. The steps that were required, were taken, Qureshi said.
The idea was to keep the world secure, and to keep the assets secure, and to make sure that an incident of this nature does not happen in the future. And all those objectives have been met, the Dawn quoted him, as saying.
A.Q. Khan, as far as we are considered, is history. AQ Khan no longer has any official status. The network that he put together has been effectively broken, Qureshi added.
He has no access to any vital information, or to our vital assets any more, so he is neutralized vis-a-vis any proliferation activity, he further said. (ANI)
