Pakistan says not bound by treaty on prohibition of nuclear weapons via The Economic Times

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan today said that it was not bound by the recently concluded treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons as it failed to take into account the interests of all stakeholders.

Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement that the Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, adopted by a vote on July 7 did not fulfil these essential conditions – both in terms of process and substance.

It said Pakistan, therefore, like all the other nuclear armed states, did not take part in its negotiations and cannot become a party to to the treaty.

It said that it is committed to the goal of a nuclear weapons free world through the conclusion of a universal, verifiable and non-discriminatory, comprehensive convention on nuclear weapons.
