Pak not heading towards civil war: USNovember 14th, 2007 - 3:03 am ICT by admin
Some media reports, and at least one US lawmaker, even urged the US Government to “secure” Pakistan’s nuclear weapons before the country disintegrated.
“I don’t think I would describe the situation in Pakistan quite as you did,” said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack when asked at a regular briefing if the US is concerned that Pakistan is falling apart.
“Pakistan is undergoing a political transition,” said McCormack, noting that there had been a number of “positive developments” in the country as well.
These included “moderate forces within the Pakistani political system working together for a moderate Pakistan”, he added.
McCormack rejected the suggestion that the US is “picking candidates or political parties” as favourites in Pakistan, the Dawn reported. (ANI)
