An acknowledgement of IAEA towards Pakistan’s efforts in making its nuclear structure safe and sound. Enhancing more on technical cooperation is a really healthy sign which also unknot many new horizons of cooperation at the international front with other nations. The IAEA is an international body which manages the nuclear activities of the country and Pakistan is an important part of its decision making body. This is also instrumental in boosting up Pakistan as a nuclear weapon state in the world. It is a big achievement of all the related authorities of Pakistan nuclear facilities that despite of being the non-signatory member of NPT, the country voluntarily put lot of efforts to ensure the security of its nuclear credentials.
