“Nuclear scientists are our national pride and their security is our responsibility,” he said.

The services of disgraced nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan were unforgettable and he would never be handed over to any other country, Aziz said.

Pakistan is the only nuclear Islamic state and every citizen should be proud of this feat as it ensures national security, sovereignty and progress, he said while addressing a launching ceremony for the new Bhambore Express train.

Aziz said the Pakistan of today and tomorrow was not the Pakistan of yesterday.

Over the past eight years the government had implemented broad-based multi-sectoral reforms, which had effectively repositioned the country, he added.

He said the present government’s policies had provided good governance by maintaining transparency and empowering people from the grassroots to the national level.

As a result of these reforms, Pakistan has become an anchor for peace and stability in the region, he said, adding that it was now in a better position to leverage its assets to promote national interests, the Daily Times quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
