Pakistan's nuclear assets and vital installations safe: Aziz

November 21, 2005 20:19 IST

Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz has said Pakistan's strategic assets like nuclear installations and big dams were not damaged by the October 8 quake.

Addressing newspersons Sunday evening,Aziz rejected a recent European Union statement that quake-related aid should be approved by Parliament.

"Pakistan is a sovereign country and understands its responsibilities. There is no need to tell us what to do," he added.

Aziz said a mechanism had already been put in place to ensure utilisation of funds in a transparent manner.

He said the success of Saturday's donors' conference had proved that Pakistan enjoyed a respectable place among the comity of nations.

"The countries having no diplomatic relations have also made contributions," Aziz added.
