Lahore, Oct.15 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf has said that there is no threat to the country's nuclear assets from terrorists as they were being tightly guarded by the military.

Despite the fact that terrorists have displayed their might by attacking the Pakistan Army's General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi, Musharraf claimed that it was impossible for the extremists to fight the military and establish control over the nuclear armaments.

"The only scenario where militants could access the country's nukes was after defeating the Pakistan Army, and such a scenario was impossible," The Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying.

Musharraf blamed the international community for maintaining 'double standards' while dealing with India and Pakistan.

"It was providing strategic assistance to India in the field of nuclear technology and at the same time was pressurizing Pakistan over its nuclear programme," the former general said.

Musharraf also claimed that Indian intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) was fanning insurgency in Balochistan.

Commenting on the Army's objection over the controversial Kerry Lugar Bill, he said the reservations were 'valid' and 'justified'. (ANI)
