Islamabad, Sep 26 (UNI) Pakistan today condemned a statement by former prime minister Benazir Bhutto that she would allow International Atomic Energy Agency to question disgraced nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan.
Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Senator Tariq Azeem condemned the statement, saying the government would never compromise on national interest.
He said no international power would be allowed to interfere in the country's atomic programme.
''The government had already investigated A Q Khan case and there is no need to reopen it,'' he added.
Ms Bhutto, while addressing a seminar at the Middle East Institute in Washington, has said she would allow the UN nuclear watchdog to question Dr Khan, if she became Prime Minister.
