Islamabad, Sep 27 (UNI) Former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has reiterated her stand that she would give the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) access to disgraced nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, saying she did not believe in a ''cover up''.

''I do not want Pakistan to be known as a rogue nation, nor do I believe in exporting nuclear technology. I want Pakistan to be known as a law abiding state,'' Daily Times quoted Ms Bhutto as telling a news conference at the Middle East Institute at the Russell Senate Building in Washington.

Personal spokesman for the Pakistan People's Party chief Farhatullah Babar asserted that, if elected, the party would form a parliamentaryt committee to probe into the matter.

He said during the last three year the PPP parliamentarians had been demanding on the floor of the house comprehensive investigations into the activities of the A Q Khan network, The News reported.

Mr Babar said it was a very serious security matter for a country like Pakistan. He said that it must be probed in the best interest of the country and its security, which was undermined by the activities of this network.
