Pakistan has reportedly told the United States that access to peaceful nuclear technology was a socio-economic priority for the energy-starved nation and therefore, it was not possible for the country to sign any non-proliferation agreements.

Islamabad however, assured Washington that it will not be the first in the region to resume nuclear testing, reports the Dawn.

A joint statement issued after the seventh round of the U.S.-Pakistan Security, Strategic Stability, and Non-proliferation Working Group meeting in Washington on Tuesday, however, indicated a continued U.S. interest in persuading Islamabad to enter such agreements.

As per the statement, it was not just “another round of bilateral talks” and that both sides raised sensitive issues relating to Pakistan’s nuclear programme and its impact on the relations with both the U.S. and India, along with various confidence building measures for improving India-Pakistan ties.
