Pakistan will not leave Iran alone in any eventuality: Pak minister

Pakistan will not leave Iran alone in case of any eventuality, said Pakistan's Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Senator Tariq Azeem here on Wednesday.


In an interview with "IRNA", Senator Tariq Azeem said that Pakistan and Iran had always sided with each other in need of trial and now Islamabad would not leave Tehran at this critical juncture.

He said that Pakistan was opposed to any option other than dialogue to resolve the Iran nuclear program stand-off.

"We support talks to end the US stand-off with Iran and strongly oppose all other options."
"Pakistan and the ruling Pakistan Muslim League have a very clear stance on the issue, as both Tehran and Islamabad share common history, and are locked in common bonds of religion and culture," he maintained.

On behalf of the party, he condemned the threats being hurled against Iran and said that Pakistan would not tolerate Israel or any other country's attack against the Islamic Republic.

He contended that all countries had the legitimate right to make use of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes and no country had the right to deprive an independent state of this privilege.

The minister said that Iran had many times made it clear to the world community that its program was for benefiting from peaceful nuclear technology.

Referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency, he said that the nuclear watchdog had not also reached a final conclusion against Iran's nuclear program, therefore, issuing threats to a sovereign country was uncalled for.

No it probably means that Iran's nuclear program came from Pakistan. Well, we know a lot of it did. But Iran apparently has Chinese-origin nuclear warhead designs. Now where could they have come from? So, I assume, Pakistan is trying to tell Iran not to squeal on them and they will oppose any American intervention. A case of sticking together or hanging together.

the thing is that pakistan is no longer a completely sovereign country. u.s. calls the shots. if u.s. wanted to launch an attack on iran from baluchistan could pakistan say "go to hell"? what could pakistan do?
