ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif once again took up Pakistan’s case for membership to the Nuclear Supplier Group with the US after President Barack Obama called the Pakistani premier late on Thursday.

According to the PM House, the two leaders spoke for almost half an hour via telephone.

President Obama updated Nawaz about his recent visit to India, while Nawaz briefed the latter about Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

While appreciating Pakistan’s growing cordial relations with Afghanistan, the US president also lauded Pakistan’s effort to counter terrorism and successfully launching a military operation in North Waziristan.

Opposing the idea of India getting a permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Nawaz argued that India should not add to the P-5 since it has been violating UN resolutions on Kashmir.


observer | 6 years ago | Reply Sure, every pariah failed country that steals nuke technology from western countries (Khan-Urenco), proliferates to Iran, Libya, North Korea and Saudi Arabia should be part of the NSG. Why not?
Dipak | 6 years ago | Reply [email protected] Makhlooq: Because you guys are irresponsible people. AQ Khan who stole the nuclear technology was also selling the same to Iran, Lybia and South Korea. Musharaf protected the thieves. Read HISTORY. Nobody trusts Pakistan.
