Pak military, nuclear sites safe amidst worst floods: ISPR

By Nairita Das

Islamabad, Aug.20 (ANI): The Pakistan Army has assured the world that the country's military and nuclear installations are completely safe even as the nation struggles to cope with devastating floods.

"There is no danger to our defence and nuclear installations from flooding. All our nuclear and military installations have remained safe and there is no further danger from flooding," Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) DG Major General Athar Abbas said.

Pakistan has two nuclear power plants at Chasma in south Punjab along the Indus River, which broke its banks and wreaked havoc in the region following continuous monsoon rains.

Nearly one-fifth of Pakistan is badly hit by the deluge, the worst in the country in 80 years.

Over 1,700 people have died and the UN says more than 6,50,000 people are without basic shelter while six million desperately need emergency aid. (ANI)
