No stone will be left unturned to save nuclear assets: SPD head


No stone will be left unturned to secure Pakistan’s nuclear installations and assets, Strategic Plans Division (SPD) Director General Major General Muhammad Tahir said on Sunday. Tahir was chief guest at the graduation parade of a fresh batch of 700 security force trainee officials in Rawalpindi after they completed six months of advanced training in nuclear security. An ISPR statement said Tahir expressed his satisfaction on the quality of training imparted and motivation of trainee officials.
He said extensive resources had been made available to train, equip, deploy and sustain an independent and potent security force to meet threats to the nuclear program. He said the SPD planed to increase its capacity by inducting an additional 8,000 personnel in the nuclear security force. Training is being imparted at the SPD training academy where recently retired SPD Director General Lieutenant Gen (r) Khalid Ahmed Kidwai reviewed the graduation parade of a batch of 200 trainee officials.
