SEOUL, March 27 � India today warned that nuclear terrorism and clandestine proliferation will continue to pose serious threats as long as there are terrorists seeking access to atomic material and technologies for malicious purposes, reports PTI.
�Nuclear terrorism and clandestine proliferation continue to pose serious threats to international security,� Prime Minister Manmohan Singh told world leaders while addressing the second Nuclear Security Summit here.
He said an India-piloted resolution on measures to deny terrorists access to weapons of mass destruction had been adopted by consensus since 2002. Singh said it seeks enforcement of legal and regulatory measures against the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons to non-state actors.
�Nuclear terrorism will remain a potent threat as long as there are terrorists seeking to gain access to nuclear material and technologies for malicious purposes. India is acutely conscious of this threat,� he said, without referring to any specific country.
However, world leaders are concerned over the safety of Pakistan�s atomic weapons as it remains vulnerable because its atomic facilities are located in areas where �Taliban and al- Qaeda are more than capable of launching terrorist attacks�.
