Islamabad, May 7 (ANI): The Pakistan Foreign Office on Thursday rubbished reports that Islamabad has shared information about its nukes with US authorities.

Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit told reporters here that information about Pakistan’s nukes is sacrosanct and could not be shared with any other country.

‘Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is safe and secure and concerns about their security are invalid,’ said Basit.

Responding to a question, the spokesman described as untrue that India has been granted a transit trade route for Afghanistan.

Basit said it is a mere MOU under which Pakistan and Afghanistan would holds talks on the matter.

Commenting on the Swat peace deal, the spokesman said: “Peace and peace deal are interlinked, if there is no peace then there is no deal.”

The spokesman said if militants lay down their arms then the peace deal can be salvaged.

The spokesman rejected the assertions of the Afghan President that Pakistan is the hub of terrorism and said terrorism is faced by both countries. (ANI)
