No reason to worry about Pak's N-weapons safety: US

In the aftermath of the terror attack at the Karachi airport, the US has said that there is "no reason" to worry about the safety of Pakistan's nuclear weapons.

"We know that they (Pakistan Government) care about this a great deal and have no reason at this point to think it's anything but safe," State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf told reporters yesterday.

"We believe the Pakistani Government understands the importance of protecting all of its arsenal, including things related to its nuclear program," he said.

Harf was responding to a question about the safety of Pakistan's nuclear weapons in the aftermath of militants' attack at the Karachi airport, resulting in killing of 30 people including 10 terrorists.

The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
