Pakistan on Thursday once again rejected conjectures about safety of its nuclear assets and said these were under a strong multi-layered security system with no possibility of the weapons falling in the hands of Taliban. Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit told a weekly briefing that reports appearing in the Western media about Pakistan's nuclear assets were part of a malicious campaign against the country. The spokesman said no amount of coercion, direct or indirect, would ever force Pakistan to compromise on its core security interests. He said nuclear deterrence was the corner stone of Pakistan's security and enjoyed complete national consensus. "Pakistan is committed to maintaining a strong, effective and multi-layered command and control nuclear security system," he said.
