In the 70s France and Pakistan had a signed agreement for a Nuclear Reprocessing plant. Despite the fact that funding had been arranged, France reneged on the sale under pressure from America. In the 90s Benazir Bhutto resurrected the deal and Paris promised to set up a Reprocessing plant for Pakistan. France again did not conform to its promises and did not supply the plant. Mr Sarkozy had “confirmed France was ready, within the framework of its international agreements, to co-operate with Pakistan in the field of nuclear safety.” “This is so the Pakistani programme can develop in the best conditions of safety and security,”the French spokesman. AFP “France has agreed to transfer civilian nuclear technology to Pakistan, That is a significant development, and we have agreed that Pakistan should be treated like India. President Sarkozy said, and I quote him, ‘What can be done for India, can be done for Pakistan as well.’,” “Shah Mahmood Qureshi told reporters Apparently France and Pakistan has reached a verbal breakthrough on Nuclear Technology and The French president at present is not ready to publicly proclaim that France will indeed build reactors for Pakistan. France will come be under tremendous pressure on this issue and may be planning to work through it in conjunction with the IAEA and other members of the Nuclear Suppliers Group. PARIS, May 15 (Xinhua) — France has agreed to offer Pakistan its civilian nuclear technology, French media quoted Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi as saying on Friday. (more…)

Random thoughts Part II

In Iraq and Afghanistan the Americans validified their attacks by repeatedly lying to their own nation and to the world at large. Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction or a nuclear weapons programme and Afghanistan, as a country, was not involved in the 9/11 attack. Meanwhile, more than three million innocent Muslim men, women and children have lost their lives. Saddam Hussain was hanged for killing 43 people and Omar Hassan Al-Bashir has been presented with a warrant of arrest. But Bush and Blair are still moving around as VVIPs. Similarly, “Chemical Ali” was condemned to death for his role in the manufacture of chemical weapons, but no American was ever charged with the manufacture, or use, of Agent Orange.

The recent conditions placed on aid to Pakistan are unfairly discriminatory. But then, beggars can’t be choosers. Do we want to continue depending on aid? Isn’t it time we threw away the begging bowl and became masters of our own destiny despite the initial hardships this may cause? As a matter of fact $1.5 billion in aid is not that much compared to the $7 billion per year that Pakistan is receiving from expatriate Pakistanis. This amount could be greatly increased if the Pakistani government demonstrates good governance, sincerity and an earnest approach to solving problems.

THE TRAITOR GOVERNMENT CONTINUES ITS TREACHEROUS ACTS!!!!!

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan�s nuclear programme is facing severe financial cuts, badly hampering some core classified projects, it is learnt.

A source told The News that several development programmes of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, including some classified ones, have been slowed down and some even halted as the government has imposed an unprecedented squeeze.

The classified side of the PAEC development budget saw a cut of almost 35 per cent while for the open development programmes only 15 per cent of the budget has been released, thus affecting more than 30 projects. The source said that senior nuclear scientists and those holding key positions in the country�s nuclear programme apparatus were extremely upset with the situation and fear that the cut would badly damage the nuclear programme and would tantamount to a quiet unannounced rollback.

The PAEC member administration, however, denied this but conceded that there had been belt-tightening because of the global recession. Major-General Khalid Mushtaq, while talking to this correspondent on phone from his office, said that the global recession had led to the belt-tightening and the emphasis was on the judicious utilisation of the available resources.

He denied any compromise on the country�s nuclear programme and its development. The resource crunch, he said, should not be interpreted in a manner that may show that there was any compromise on the programme.

General Mushtaq said that he did not know the details of the spending as he was on the administration side of the PAEC. But he insisted that any impression of funds stoppage or slowing down of development programmes would not be true.
