CANBERRA (INP) - Pakistan has demanded Australia allow buying of nuclear raw material after ruling Labour Party approved uranium sale to India, an Australian newspaper reported Monday. The Australian newspaper said Pakistans High Commissioner to Australia Abdul Malik Abdullah said if Australia was willing to export uranium to India, it should sell it to Pakistan as well. Abdullah said Pakistan has not made a request to buy Australian uranium but this could call for in the future. In that case, we will hope that we will also be treated at par with other non-NPT signatories, he said. If Australia is going to lift the ban on a country which has not signed Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) it is much hoped that will also apply to Pakistan the same way, Abdullah was quoted as saying. Talking to UK TV channel, Australian Defence Minister Stephen Smith said that PM Gillard-led administration proceeds with sales of yellowcake to New Delhi. Labour Party Sunday voted to overturn a decade-old ban on uranium sale to India, paving the way for Canberra to supply yellowcake to a nation outside the NPT. Interestingly, Australias Prime Minister Julia Gillard had recently asked Pakistan to do more to combat terrorism and extremism. Noting that Pakistan would have the largest Muslim population by the middle of the century and also had nuclear weapons, Australian Defence Minister Stephen Smith has said Pakistan government and parliament did not publicly support terrorism or extremism. We dont have rose-coloured glasses about the complexity or the difficulties of Pakistan, but we strongly believe that Australia and the rest of the world need to engage with Pakistan, he said. The report noted that Smith has used his powers under the Weapons of Mass Destruction (Prevention of Proliferation) Act to block exports to Pakistan three times in the past two years, acting on intelligence that suggested Australian goods and services might be misused. In 2010, the minister intervened to block a contract between an Australian company and a Pakistan-based company for the supply of scientific instruments. For the first time under the Act, Smiths prohibition notice also extended to any training provided to the Pakistan-based company. This year, Smith has blocked exports of scientific equipment and industrial equipment to Pakistan. Pakistan is being dealt with under the Act in much the same way as Iran was dealt with before tougher UN sanctions were imposed.
