New Delhi, Oct. 23 (ANI): Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao on Friday expressed concern over the suicide bomb attack near the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex in Kamra, which reportedly houses some of the country's nuclear assets.

Rao said that New Delhi was aware of the attack and hoped the authorities in Islamabad would ensure the safeguarding of those assets to prevent any untoward incident in the future.

"What I want to say on the issue is that we hope that the Pakistan Government will continue to take steps to effectively secure their nuclear assets," Rao said.

The bomb attack claimed the lives of eight people, but officials moved quickly to deny suggestions that it was linked to the country's nuclear program.

A Pakistan Air Force official was quick to dispel suggestions on Friday that the Kamra facility was linked to the weapons program.

The Pakistan Government has already said that the country's nuclear infrastructure is safe and faced no threat from Taliban militants. (ANI)
