Islamabad, Apr.9 (ANI): The Pakistan Foreign Office has ruled out changing the National Command Authority (NCA), which manages the country’s nuclear weapons. Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Sadiq told a foreign news agency on Tuesday that there were no plans to change the nuclear command structure. “There’s no reason to change anything in a hurry,” other sources told the agency. The agency quoted Lt. Gen. (retired) Talat Masood, a security analyst, as saying that there would be a gradual and greater nvolvement of civilian rulers in the military and defence and nuclear affairs as compared to the past. “But the security, safety and operational sides will obviously continue to remain in the hands of the military,” he said.
