Islamabad, Dec. 15 (ANI): Pakistan's National Command Authority (NCA) has said that the country will not be a party to any approach that is prejudicial to legitimate national security interests.
In a meeting that was chaired by Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, a review of recent global and regional developments and their implications on Pakistan's national security was carried out.
According to the Daily Times, the NCA expressed concern over policies and trends of selectivity, exceptionalism and discrimination regarding strategic export control regimes.
Such policies, its members said, would be detrimental to Pakistan's interests, international peace and security, besides undermining the credibility of the existing non-proliferation regime.
They also said that these policies are inconsistent with the national laws and international obligations.
It was also noted that revisionism based on strategic, political or commercial considerations accentuated asymmetries and would perpetuate instability, especially in South Asia.
During the meeting, the NCA underscored that peace and security were indivisible and that ensuring equal and undiminished security for all states could only advance the goals of non-proliferation.
NCA members, including federal ministers, the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee chairman, services chiefs and senior officials, attended the meeting. (ANI)
