Pakistan opposes use of force against Iran

Written by: Staff

Islamabad, Apr 10 (UNI) Pakistan today reiterated its opposition to any use of force or military action against Iran to settle the row over its controversial nuclear programme.

''Islamabad would like to see the (US-Iran) standoff resolved within IAEA framework,'' foreign office spokesperson Tasneem Aslam told a press briefing in Islamabad.

''Our policy is very clear, we have said repeatedly that we are opposed to military action,'' she added.

Pakistan would "still like to see the issue resolved within the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) framework through negotiations.'' Pakistan's reaction comes as a team of five IAEA inspectors visit Iran to inspect its uranium enrichment and reprocessing facilities.

''We do hope that there would be some positive outcome and forward movement,'' she said on the IAEA team's visit.

She reiterated that Pakistan was opposed to military action as ''we do not want any more instability in this region and we would like all concerned to exercise restraint.'' UNI XC YA HS2304
